Full Description

NG25NE 1 2566 5927.

The crofting township of 'Dunhallin' is overlooked from the E by a rocky knoll on which Dun Hallin is situated. The knoll provides a focus for a series of radiating banks defining globular areas, some of which contain ridging. Within this area there is a scatter of buildings and shieling-huts as well as patches of recent agriculture.
