Aitnock Fort

Aitnock Fort is an Iron Age defensive structure (probably a dun) overlooking the Rye Water in North Ayrshire. It occupies a cliff-top location above Hindog Glen, a mile (1.6 km) northwest of Dalry. It was defended by concentric stone walls separated by a deep ditch. The site was excavated 1901-2 revealing a sandstone cauldron, a glass bead, 1st or 2nd C. Samian pottery fragments, quern-stone fragments and four Roman coins, together with other stone and iron objects.
