The development of this website would not have been possible
without the help, support and encouragement of many people - and especially the archaeologists and scientists whose inquiring minds and skills have brought Rubh' an Dùnain into public focus and led to its formal designation in October 2017 as an Historic Monument.
The Society is extremely grateful to all those whose skills as writers, photographers and specialists have provided essential guidance – in their own time and at their own expense.
