Next to a minor road in the hamlet of Garth – off the B9075.

A grass covered mound on top of a large rock/grass mound.
Easily visible from the road.

Canmore states:
‘On the summit of a knoll named ‘The Burrian’ are the mutilated remains of a broch mound c16.5m in diameter and 0.6m high. Large deposits of midden material have been uncovered around the broch’.
