Despite its size we managed to actually drive past the Broch before I spotted it while exploring its ‘twin’ up the road. There is a parking space and information board. Access is via a wooden gate and short path.
The half of the walling still standing is very impressive – pity the other side is gone.
However, enough remains to give you a good idea of how substantial these Brochs were when first built. (Doubt my house will look so good in 2,000 years time!)
You can walk a short way up the internal staircase which is an added bonus..
It is a long old drive along a narrow, twisting and often poorly surfaced road to get to these Brochs off the main A87 but in my opinion well worth it.
An easier route would be via the ferry from Skye if you happen to be on holiday there.
