Sheep Hill Fort :: Shared Description

Sheep Hill is the site of a fort that is marked on the 1:25000 and 1:50000 OS maps. The remains of a vitrified fort on the summit are within a larger, later enclosure. See LinkExternal link (at Canmore) for further archaeological details. The fort is a scheduled monument (see LinkExternal link at Historic Environment Scotland), and hence is protected under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979. Excavations were carried out at the end of the nineteenth century, and in the 1970s. As of 2017, the site is within a few metres of the operational area of a working quarry, Sheephill Quarry.
