Dun Troddan



Only half a kilometer separates this broch from its nearest neighbor Dun Telve to its west, but unlike it's slightly more complete brother it is higher up the northern hillside of the valley, affording it better views up and down the glen and of the mountains, and for that reason I'm out, I mean in, I mean I prefer this one (rolls eyes).
When we first got here there was already two cars so instead of overcrowding the place we went up the road to the burial chamber, which was nice, upon our return we found no cars, and had the place to ourselves, take note incidental tourists that have to read the information board.
For a good ten minutes we poked our noses into every nook and cranny the broch had to offer, we walked round it several times, nearer and farer, yep I like this one best. Fabulous views of the glen, all these trees with afternoon mists wandering round at will, then the other people came, we were nearly done anyway, a couple of minutes more wouldn't have hurt though. Bloody tourists.
