History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
However, the dun itself goes back much earlier, probably to the Iron Age or perhaps even earlier. There is little enough to see beyond very low foundation walls. The dun is easily visible from the main road, but there is no access to the island unless you happen to have a boat handy!
