  • Mull Historical & Archaeological Society | Crannogs
    the Early and Middle Bronze Age The earliest radiocarbon evidence indicates their use in Scotland from the Late Bronze Age Early Iron Age Crannogs were usually constructed as brush timber or stone mounds into which timber piles could be sunk to support the dwelling above However some were entirely built as free standing wooden structures In the Western Isles timber was in short supply from the Neolithic onwards so that completely stone crannogs supporting dry stone architecture are common here In some cases the island s perimeter has been surrounded by a dry stone wall or revetment presumably to facilitate the levelling of the interior but in other cases the enclosure wall appears to have been designed for defence e g Caisteal Eoghainn a Chinn Bhig Loch Sguabain Mull Eilean Amalaig Loch Frisa Mull which is unusual because it is situated on an entirely natural islet in a sea loch also appears to have had a defensive role The islands were generally surfaced with loose boulders although at least one timber sub structure has been identified In Lochnameal Mull the boulder causeway to the crannog is reported to be founded on trunks of oak Today crannogs typically appear as small circular islets often covered in dense vegetation due to their inaccessibility to grazing livestock or remain hidden as submerged stony mounds They vary in size and changes in water level can cause considerable size variation in individual crannogs but the majority measure between 12 m and 25 m in diameter Some exhibit the remains of small dry stone domestic buildings tentatively ascribed to the late medieval or early post medieval periods This attribution is supported by documentary evidence concerning two of Mull s crannogs Caisteal Eoghainn a Chinn Bhig and the crannog in Loch Bà both of which were occupied

  • Mull Historical & Archaeological Society | Duns
    although there are a great many others scattered along the coastline They are usually situated on small islands the summits of low hills and knolls rocky crags and at the end of coastal and inland promontories and are distinguished from forts by their relatively small size and the disproportionate thickness of their walls It is assumed that they were designed to provide defence for extended family units whereas forts were intended to provide refuge for whole local communities Most duns are oval in plan but they can be almost circular or irregular in shape where they have been adapted to the shapes of natural crags Below is an alphabetical list of Mull s duns Where the name is highlighted more detailed information is available sometimes including images Click to go to the link Please check back for further information as the Society has an ongoing updating programme Allt Cill Chriosd Mornish An Caisteal Bunessan An Dun Killunaig Torrans Loch Scridain An Sean Dun Glengorm Cnoc na Sroine Glenaros Salen Cruach Sleibhe Calgary Dun a Chiabhaig Uisken Dun a Geard Kilvickeon Assapol Dun Aisgain Burg Loch Tuath Dun Aoidhean Isle of Erraid Dun Auladh Druimghigha Croig Dun Ban Tostarie Dun Bhuirg

    side of the Ross of Mull and has an area of 2 47 acres A general characteristic of these forts is that the main defensive structure is usually a single stoutly built stone wall of boulder faced construction with a solid dry stone core and with a thickness ranging from 2 m to 5 2 m This is often protected by minor outworks in the form of lengths of walling Most of Mull s 22 known forts are situated in strongly defensive positions on rocky crags and at the end of coastal and inland promontories where steep sometimes almost vertical rock faces protect the approaches Two are well situated on hilltops and one on a small offshore island However a few occupy low hills and knolls which have few defensive advantages Below is an alphabetical list of the known forts on Mull Where the name is highlighted more detailed information is available sometimes including images Click to go to the link Please check back for further information as the Society has an ongoing updating programme Creag a Chaisteil Calgary Dun an Fheurain Ardanalish Bunessan Dun Ban Mingary Quinish Point Dun Breac Ardvergnish Loch Scridain Dun Eiphinn Gometra Dun Guaire Croig
