The fort at Dunadd on the edge of Kilmartin is well worth the climb. The route up is well sign-posted with official Ministry ‘arrows’ that eventually take you through the main entrance.

The fort is in the guardianship of Historic Scotland.

Among the visible remains are some of the internal structures. This formed part of a major regional centre c. AD 600.

The view from the top is more than rewarding looking out over Moine Mhôr towards the Crinan canal.
