Blending into the Landscape

The first fort I visited on my last trip to Inis Mor was Dun Eochla, an almost cozy sort of hilltop fort that is isolated enough that you might not see another visitor during your stay there.

If you look closely along the left side of the photo below (a view from the Dun’s walls), you’ll see another round, apparently stone structure. It’s actually a concrete water reservoir that has been camouflaged with local stones so as to blend into the landscape. Genius!
