East Dod Law hillfort (Doddington)

This is the most easterly of the three Iron Age hillforts on Dod Law (the others being Middle Dod Law and West Dod Law). It is oval in plan with two concentric ramparts of earth with some stones visible in places. Which of the three gaps in the ramparts is the original entrance is unknown. Inside the enclosure there are no apparent trace of hut circles but there are two possible slightly scooped hut platforms. A nearby cairn originally covered a cup and ring marked stone, which was probably used as part of the wall for East Dod Law enclosure.
