Excavation focussed on the outer face of the rampart and sections through the rampart. Although the whole interior of the fort was excavated to bed-rock, the number of relics recovered was small. Pottery and bone implements were totally absent. A broken flint scraper, two saddle querns and a looped and socketed iron axe and a bronze La Tene brooch were among the objects found. The brooch strengthens the evidence from Dunagoil and Duntroon for a date in the La Tene period for vitrified forts north of the Clyde-Forth line.
