I didn’t have time to go and have a proper look at this Broch but it is easily visible from Midhowe Broch as a circular stone feature.

Canmore states:
'North Howe, the scant remains of a broch marked by a grassy mound c.17.0m in diameter and 2.5m maximum height, with traces of the outer wall face visible for a length of about 12.0m around the NW arc. There are no definite traces of outbuildings but the uneven ground in the vicinity is suggestive of a secondary settlement'
