Broch of Midhowe



Visited 5.6.12

Myself and Sophie wandered around the Broch as part of our visit to the nearby Chambered Cairn.

The Broch is pretty well preserved although a fair bit of it is held together with bolts and metal bars!
You can certainly get a good feel of how people would have lived inside these structures and how the Broch was constructed.

This Broch is the best I visited on Orkney but I have to say it is not as good as a couple I visited on Shetland – but that’s another story!
