Carman Hill-fort: outer wall of annexe
This is the ninth in a series of ten linked items showing the structure of an ancient hill-fort on Carman Hill (for an in-depth discussion of its history, see LinkExternal link ).

This photo shows the same wall as the previous item, but from a position further along its course.

[See the end-note for a link to an annotated satellite view. The annexe is on the east, outlined by dark pink markers. In the list of markers associated with that map, click on the second of the two "Annexe - outer wall" entries to see where this photograph was taken.]

Carman Hill-fort
This large hill-fort was identified in 1954 from aerial photographs, and is thought to date from the Early Historic period: see LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view, and LinkExternal link for other antiquities nearby. The fort lies within what was once the territory of the Damnonii and (later) of the British kingdom of Alt Clut, whose fortress was at Dumbarton Rock: LinkExternal link
