Druim an Dúin
List of Sites
The dun was excavated by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland in 1904-5 but the work appears to have consisted of little more than stone clearance.
This well preserved dun occupies a commanding position at the N end of a ridge which overlooks a sharp bend in the public road (B8025) that runs from the head of Caol Scotnish to Bellanoch. The site is easily approached from the SW along the spine of the ridge, but on the NE and SE it is flanked by long steep slopes and on the NW by a precipitous cliff some 30m in height. A portion of rotary quern found here suggests that it was used after 1st century BC, when this piece of equipment became popular.
