A detailed topographic survey of the surviving vitrified stone walls enclosing the summit of a natural knoll at Torr Dhuin located to the southwest of Fort Augustus was carried out by Rubicon Heritage Services in February 2014 on behalf of Forestry Commission Scotland. The purpose of the survey was to provide an enhanced baseline record of the upstanding remains at the site to inform future conservation and management of the monument. The topographical survey covered an approximate area of 11,750 m², centred on the visible upstanding remains of the monument and including an immediate zone around the site as determined by local topography. The results of the survey enabled the production of 3D digital terrain models and recorded the nature and extent of surviving stonework within their immediate context.<1>
