Dun Beag (Fort)
Dun Beag (Fort)
Unlike the nearby Dun Mor Broch, this site is thought to have been an oval dun rather than a broch. A trial excavation in 1963 on the summit of the knoll showed that the ruins of the main wall were overlaid by occupation debris which yielded decorated pottery indistinguishable from that found at Dun Mor as well as a complete bronze ring-headed pin. The finds are kept in the Hunterian Museum of the University of Glasgow. This evidence probably provides further confirmation that different kinds of Iron Age stone structure need not imply major cultural differences.
