Dun Cuithir archeological walk, Allasdale

A rough moorland walk on the western side of Barra, exploring several archaelogical sites. The route is waymarked with posts - there is mostly no path- although these have a tendency to be knocked down by grazing cows, so careful navigation is required at times.


Grassy moorland, becoming increasingly rougher and heather-covered; boggy in places. Mostly pathless but waymarked by posts, some of which are knocked down by cows.

Public Transport

Bus around the west side of Barra will stop at the cemetery on request.


Parking by the cemetery at Allasdale. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
