Barsalloch Fort
Barsalloch Fort
An Iron Age promontory fort looking south to the Isle of Man. The fort is defended on the landward side by a deep ditch between a pair of banks, and by the natural slope of the land on the seaward side.
The ditch encloses an area about 42 metres x 44 metres. The ditch itself is about 3.5 metres deep, up to 10 metres wide, with the banks adding another 1.1 metres to the defenses. The entrance is not immediately apparent due to the effects of later farming, but may have been at the north east, on the lowest point of the headland.

There are few remains visible within the earthworks, and the real appeal of Bardsalloch is the wonderful location.
