Dunsinane Hill 3D Model
Dunsinane Hill fort is positioned on the narrow summit of a knoll, overlooking a slight break in a ridge of prominent north-south running hills near the Firth of Tay to the west of Dundee. The central fort comprises up to three banks with external ditches and surrounds a flat summit, the interior of which has been heavily damaged by 18th and 19th century antiquarian excavations. Surrounding the summit is a series of natural terraces, some of which seem to have been protected with the addition of banks, indicating this site may be an Early Medeival nuclear hillfort. Alcock (1980) suggests this site can be linked with the ‘Dunsion’ mentioned in the Pictish Regnal Lists. The fort is also associated with Macbeth, with the site mentioned in the play as his residence, which was eventually attacked and destroyed.
