About Castlehill, Duncow

Continue along this road. As the road starts to climb, on your left is the site of an Iron Age fort at Castlehill. If you go through a gate to the left just beyond the two houses you can take a short detour to the site by following the track along the burn and going through the gap in the wall ahead. The site of the fort is the hill on your left. From the earthworks there can be seen the sites of the forts at High Townhead, Mullach and others, which allowed communication between forts over a vast area from Cumbria to Lanarkshire and probably much further afield. Return to the road and continue up the hill.
