The Caterthuns (Brown and White)

Brown and White Caterthuns, Angus


The Brown and White Caterthuns are a pair of large hill forts on adjacent hills overlooking Strathmore. Both are enclosed by a series of earthworks, and it is likely they served both as military and ceremonial centres.

The Brown Caterthun is defended by four earth ramparts and ditches, and the White has a massive stone rampart, a ditch and outer ramparts.
