The Atlas of Hillforts of Britain and Ireland is a brilliant wee website that plots the hillforts of the British Isles (4174 of them according to DigVentures post).

Dearest to my heart of course is Dechmont Hill above Cambuslang, a place I’m relatively obsessed with (its hilltop trees can be spotted from all over North and South Lanarkshire) but there are quite a few fortifications within the local area, including a fair few I didn’t know about in Lanarkshire. It’s amazing to follow the Clyde and see the forts appearing on either side of the river. Even more wonderful to zoom right in and see the remains or marks for yourself.

Love it.
