Dún na Nighinne
List of Sites
"One of the most impressive duns in Mid Argyll" stands on a rocky ridge and measured about 15m by 12m with a carefully built wall 3.5m thick. This still stands 2.3m high (sixteen courses) at the S but on the NW side has slipped down the ridge. The entrance is at the NE end but was reconstructed in antiquity. The original entrance was about 2m wide but was later reduced to 1m wide when a short length of walling was inserted. This still stands 0.9m high and is composed of massive blocks.
This site is on private land and permission should be sought.
