Dun Deardail fort 3D Model
The fort of Dun Deardail was probably built in the first millennium BC or first millennium AD. Its first ever archaeological excavation took place in late 2015 as part of the Dun Deardail project which aims to increase our understanding of the hillfort and protect it for the future. The fort may have been occupied and perhaps rebuilt on several occasions through time - from Celtic fort through to Pictish citadel. The fort dominates the glen and would have been visible for miles around. The name may be tenuously connected to the Irish legend of Deirdre of the Sorrows. The fort occupies the summit of a prominent knoll on the north-facing spur of Sgorr Chalum, on the south-west side of Glen Nevis overlooking the River Nevis some 300 metres below at the valley bottom. The fort has recently been archaeologically surveyed; it is pear-shaped in plan and covers an area of some 1250 square metres. http://scotland.forestry.gov.uk/activities/heritage/prehistoric-sites/dun-deardail-fort
