“SIGNIFICANT” FORT FOUND ON REMOTE SCOTTISH SEA STACK

Friday 17 April 2015 - courtesy of Scotsman

SCOTTISH archaeologists have uncovered a “very significant” Pictish fort after scaling a remote sea stack off the coast of Aberdeenshire, it was revealed today.

The team from Aberdeen University, believe the ancient remains could be one of many along the coast south of Stonehaven.It is the first time an official excavation has been carried out there, and the archaeologists believe they have found the remains of a house, a fireplace and ramparts.

Pictish symbol stones were said to be found on the Dunnicaer sea stack by locals in the 19th century and until this latest discovery, it was unclear whether the site held other historical remains.

Lead archaeologist Dr Gordon Noble said it could be the precursor to Dunnottar Castle, the remains of which lie a quarter of a mile south of the site.
