See NS3779 : Ancient hill-fort on Carman Hill for the main description of the hill-fort. Click on the end-note title for related pictures, and see the annotated satellite view linked from the end-note as an index to these pictures and their positions in the fort.

The inner enclosure is best seen at its western end, as shown in this view, where it forms a ridge receding directly from the photographer's position and gradually curving away to the right. Compare NS3779 : Carman Hill-fort: line of inner enclosure, a view along it in the opposite direction from roughly the same place; the same patch of tall rushes can be seen just within the ridge in both pictures.

In the far left background of the present picture is the dark wooded ridge of Killoeter (NS3481).
