Letter West ringfort

Category: 

This stone built ring fort, or caher, is now to be found right on the roadside.  It is an elevated roughly circular shape surrounded by a ditch and outer bank. The internal bank is still impressively tall but now very overgrown. Inside nothing remains but the views across the bay are stunning.
