The hill forts along the south east coast of Islay allow for some interesting walking, here we are on our way between two of them. I believe the one ahead is An Dùn (on the right Loch Carn a’Mhaoil), but I’m not entirely sure. Oh, and those heavy dark clouds with the heavy rain never reached us, we were in the sun for most of the walk.
Some ancient Islay history, a hill fort (or better, what remains of it) in the south of Islay. Along the ridge one of the walls, the round(ish) area bottom middle is believed to have been the guardhouse with the entrance just opposite. I think this was at An Dùn, but there are a number of old hill forts and duns in the area.
