Dun Chonallaich, Kilmartin, Argyll, Scotland.
A prehistoric fortification measuring 37 metres x 16 metres and crowning the a steep craggy hill overlooking Kilmartin Burn, the wall is 1.5-4.5 metres thick. The site was severly damaged in the 1970s or early 1980s during use as a film set, when most of the current summit structures were built. I don’t envy those who had to lugg all their film gear up here, it is difficult to access even now. I’d be curious to know what was being filmed here. During RCAHMS survey work in 1983 an early historic gaming board was found amongst the rampart material, and represents one of the few finds of the period in the area.
Kite Aerial Photography was used to capture the imagery, wind conditions were turbulent and the light was poor, I am suprised how well Agisoft Metashape coped with the poor image set.
