Devised in July 2010. Dun Leccamore is a hill fort (dun), on the highest cliff on the Isle of Luing in the Inner Hebrides. This well- preserved dun was partially excavated in 1891-3 by A. MacNaughton. Built on the summit of a long ridge, a wall, 4.1-4.9m thick and in places containing 8 layers of stone, to a height of about 3 metres, encloses an oval area of nearly 20 metres by 13 metres. To the north there are two rock-cut ditches which would probably have served as quarries for the original build. Unusually there are two entrances to the dun, one on the southwest side, about 1.7m wide with a slate doorpost and a 0.9m deep hole for the door bolt, and a slightly narrower, less well- preserved entrance on the northeast side with no door jamb but with two guard cells and a staircase leading from it.
