Summary

Geophysical prospection utilizing ground penetrating radar (GPR) and magnetometry in association with a general packet radio service (GPRS) topographical survey was conducted at Caisteal Mac Tuathal – an unexcavated potential Iron Age hill fort on the northeastern terminus of Drummond Hill near Kenmore, Perthshire, Scotland. Nestled above the rich archaeology of Loch Tay and Glen Lyon, Caisteal Mac Tuathal’s prominence in the local topography, proximity to rich Iron Age landscapes, and its recurring presence within Scottish archaeological literature for over 100 years necessitates further investigation to clarify the extent of its occupation and utility. These surveys permitted the identification of select areas for future informative studies.
