1. There are very few forts in this district. One in Annacotty is situated at the back of a number of cottages. The people there believe that one of these cottages is haunted or disturbed by the fairies and that the fire irons make noise and even move about at night.

2. There is an old fort in Scart and once about fifty years ago a man named Ml Whalen was going to Biddy Early for a cure for his son and he had the bottle in his pocket. When he was passing the fort he heard music and his horse reared. The bottle was taken out of his pocket and broken in front of him. He had to return home and his son died.
