About Pirn Hill Fort
Pirn Hill is the south-western spur of Pirn Craig, locally known as ‘Rocky’. This shoulder is crowned by the remains of an iron age hill fort which comprises two rampart lines and several circular houses within the enclosure. This farming community would have been working the land about 2000 years ago. The top is now adorned with an interesting set of seven stone cairns, topped with carved slabs depicting the history of the area.
