The Picts used the promontory of Cleaved Head as a safe refuge.

On the promontory they built a wooden fort with ditches at the landward end. 

Below the fort to the east the Picts used the beach as a natural harbour. 

The Picts were known as great fishermen. 

Many carved symbol stones from the Pict age show a ‘Pictish Beast’ which is thought to be a dolphin.
