(NR 6814 4085) Dun Domhnuill (Fort) (NR)

OS 6" map, (1924)

This dun occupies most of the summit of an isolated rock, 12m in height. Parts of the wall, including the entrance which was probably on the W, have been destroyed by the crumbling of the rock face. The remainder now appears as a band of core material, bordered on the N by a stretch of outer facing-stones. The interior of the dun measures 15m in length by 7.5m in maximum width; it contains the foundation of a rectangular structure which is very probably secondary.

RCAHMS 1971, visited 1960.

Dun Domhnuill (name verified) is as described and planned by the RCAHMS.

Surveyed at 1:2500.

Visited by OS 6 December 1977.
