Duntulm Castle

Duntulm started as an Iron Age broch and then a castle belonging to the MacLeods but there is little remaining of this early castle today. The ruins that you see now date back to the 17th Century and to the MacDonalds of Sleat. There is a path from the main road leading up to the ruins however as you approach you find that there is a fence and a sign warning of the danger surrounding them. Parts of the walls have fallen into the sea at various times over the last century and as recently as 1990 so best to heed the warnings and view the ruins from this point. If you want to see what is considered to be possibly the best tracks of dinosaurs in the world go to the shore south of  Duntulm Castle at low tide and see some huge prints of sauropods from 170 million years ago.
