A dun, situated on the small tidal island of An Dunain, was recorded during a pre-afforestation survey of An Torr, Badachro. The dun, which occupies the W part of the island and is separated from the E end by a natural cleft, measures about 15m in diameter within a drystone wall. Although very overgrown with bracken and birch, two walls about 2m apart (probably the inner and outer wall faces) are visible on the NW. The outer face is constructed of much larger stones than inner face.
