This small fort, probably Iron Age, stands on top of a small steep hillock on the shore of Linne Mhuirich which provides open water to Loch Sween then the sea. At the base of the steep cliff face to the east, boulders have been set to form a wharf and jetties.
Large portions of the main wall of the dun are well preserved, although much of it was overgrown when I visited (as can be seen in the pictures).
Within the dun wall are the remains of several dry-stone buildings, and further walls are lower down the slope with an entrance to the north.
There are many other duns in the area, and other older monuments - such as the standing stones at Fernoch and Barnashaig.
