Drim Camp is a descheduled hillfort, 400 yards to the south-east of Drim Castle. The hillfort is a banked and ditched oval enclosure, about 30m north-west to south-east by 25m, having a north-west facing entrance, set on the western end of a east-west ridge summit.

Near total excavation produced evidence for later prehistoric and Roman period occupation, centring on a single circular structure; pre-enclosure activity, including cultivation marks, was attested, whilst a cremation deposit was not closely dated: a distinct later, or post-medieval occupation period, involving rectangular structures, is indicated.
