Visited 7.6.12

Right next to the B9047 on the way to the Hackness Martello Tower (H.S. site)

The remains of the Broch as easily visible from the main road – the other side of a barbed wire fence.
The remains consist of a large grass covered mound – on the shoreline.

Canmore states:
‘A turf covered mound 7ft 9ins in height land side / 30ft in height shore side. The remains cover an area almost half an acre and seem to have been disturbed by random unrecorded excavations’.
