Cashtal Lajer; Cronkould

Period: Iron Age

NGR Easting: 235850

NGR Northing: 493100

Description: Ringfort. This impressive oval earthwork survives to a maximum height of 4.6m. The bank, which averages 7m in width, has a diameter ranging from 31 to 35m. There is an entrance on the north-east side. Apart from the enclosure being built up on the north-west side to create a more-or-less level interior, there is no sign of any internal features.

The site has been compared to the circular structure at the Braaid, and stands at a roughly similar altitude, but here the likeness ends as there is no sign of any stone in the bank at Cashtal Lajer.
