East Lomond Hillfort

East Lomond Hillfort was probably the chief fortress of the Venicones tribe (a Celtic name meaning β€˜the hunting hounds’). It is thought to date from the Iron Age (700BC – AD 500) to the Early Medieval Pictish era (AD500 – c.900AD). The site comprised a summit enclosure, with ramparts and terraces on the N and NE sides. In 2014 an archaeology dig identified the site of Late Prehistoric settlement on the southern side the hill, with evidence of industrial activities.
