Keys to the Past

Kyloe Camp (Kyloe)

These are the damaged remains of an Iron Age hillfort. The site stands against the edge of a cliff, and is formed by two large, semi-circular, stone banks. There were several hut circles within the enclosure, though recent tree planting means that only one can now be recognised. A Neolithic axe head was found here in 1929. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
