Perched on a cliff overlooking the Atlantic ocean, Dún Aonghasa is the largest of the prehistoric stone forts of the Aran Islands.
The fort consists of three massive dry-stone walls and a chevaux-de-frise, a dense band of jagged, upright stones, surrounding the fort from cliff to cliff, designed to impede attackers.
Originally constructed c.1100BC, it was re-fortified around 700-800 AD.
There are no fences along the edge so taking a glance "over the edge" isn't for the faint of heart.
We managed to find a way to enjoy the view and still feel grounded. 😊
