Little Conval Fort
Little Conval Fort
A partially completed promontory fort on Little Conval hill, overlooking Dufftown to the east. There are four distinct rings of defences. The outer rings are merely small trenches, perhaps laid down as a marker for more extensive earthwork construction that never took place.

The innermost ring is more complete than the outer rings and built partly of stone rubble forming a low wall that reaches 3 metres across in places.

The fort was defended by double palisades enclosing an area of roughly 200m by 120m. The fort was built at the same time as the surrounding field system.

Access is by way of a footpath off the B9009 at the Dufftown Golf Course.

Also in the Dufftown area is the Mortlach Battle Stone, Marionburgh Cairn, and a pair of historic castles; Balvenie and Beldorney.
