Tynron Doon on left.

Tynron is a village and civil parish in Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland, lying in a hollow of the Shinnel Water, 2 miles (3.2 km) from Moniaive.

At Tynron Doon there can be seen the ditches and ramparts of a Roman Iron Age hillfort.

The name Tynron is probably from Cumbric din rhón meaning 'lance-fort' [1]
