Stackrue Broch

Stone Fort / Dun


Visited 5.6.12

We passed the Broch several times as there was a family of short eared owls nesting along the road and Karen spent many hours trying to take photos of them!

The Broch is right next to the road and a simple climb over the gate and you are on top of it.
There is room to pull over next to the Broch. The Broch is approximately 1.5 metres high.

The circular shape of the Broch can be made out and I was able to see 5 layers of remaining stonework. There is lots of loose stone strewn about the area.

This is a very easy ruined Broch to visit and worth a quick stop when in the area.
