Barry's Hill 3D Model
The impressive complex of fortifications on Barry’s Hill is located to the west of Forfar near the village of Alyth, Scotland. The defences probably represent a complex series of enclosures. The earliest was likely the central oblong fort, the walls of which show signs of vitrification, suggesting the walls were timber-laced. A massive outwork surrounds this oblong enclosure and overlies the remains of what is presumably an earlier fort. On the north and west are the remains of at least two further banks that may be associated with the truncated earthworks underneath the large bank surrounding the oblong enclosure. One of these two banks surrounds a large well to the west, as well as a craggy outcrop to the north-west. Although it is likely that the oblong fort is Iron Age, the other outworks could be of any date, thouhg they are reminicent of the Early Medieval nuclear forts that seem to be concentrated in this region of Scotland.
