Nastig Fort

Map Reference: M420060 (1420, 2060)

Nastig Fort is about 30m across. It has a good substantial bank, which also contains some stone. The entrance may be in the east and in the west there appears to be a small mural chamber. There is a large amount of small stones lying within the fort. Some of this material may have lined the bank. Just off centre there is the entrance to a souterrain. Only the outer section of this was explored on this occasion. From a previous visit it is known that this souterrain contains a well and that the inner parts are not accessible.
