Dunnadd

This is a hillfort dating from the Iron Age and early Medieval period in Kilmichael Glassary in Agyll where many of my ancestors are from. It was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Dal Riata a kingdom in the early AD after the Romans. It lies near the River Add.

Gordon hiked up to ths top of Dunnadd. This is where the early kings of Scotland were crowned. There is a foot where they supposedly put their own foot. It was too small for Gordon. They must have been smaller men. The view from the top is spectacular all around the valley. The kings viewing people and places where they would reign.

Pretty neat.
