I spotted this Broch on the O/S map and thought I would be able to see it from either the stone circle or the bridge itself.
I couldn’t actually make anything out.

Canmore states:
‘Little is left of this probable broch which is situated on a small promontory. The building appears to have been circular with a diameter of 52ft. A few of the foundation stones are traceable and there are slight signs of a ditch across the neck of the promontory’.
