Site Notes

Forsyth/1996, 244: `There was a probably Bronze Age burial cairn a distance to the north on the summit of the hill behind the Dupplin Cross, but no other archaeological remains have been discovered in its immediate vicinity. Its context, however, is clearly the remarkable focus of remains at Forteviot in the valley below. The archaeological, sculptural, and historical evidence for the Pictish and Picto-Scottish royal centre of Forteviot has been ably summarized by Alcock and Alcock'.
