NS5181 : Quinlochmore

taken 8 years ago, near to Dumgoyne, Stirling, Great Britain

The hill is located on Quinloch Muir, and is called Quinlochmore. For a discussion of earlier forms of the name Quinloch, see NS4982 : Summit of Little Caldon Hill.

The remains of a fort can be seen on the summit of the hill: NS5181 : Summit of Quinlochmore.

In addition, a linear feature can be seen running along the near side of the hill; it leads from the foot of the left-hand side of the hill to a point higher up on the right-hand side. That feature is simply the northern side of a large enclosure, which is indicated by a dotted line on the 1:25000 OS map (the enclosure is not related to the fort, and is just part of a field system of recent centuries). The enclosure as a whole is best appreciated from the southern edge of the summit of the hill: NS5181 : Enclosure beside Quinlochmore.
