Not exactly the best preserved broch on the Mainland, but they certainly knew where to put it, didn't they?

Boasting majestic views of The Kyle of Tongue and of Ben Loyal, this is worth a couple of hours of anyone's time, I'd have thought?

Although somewhat dishevelled by a couple of millennia of Highland 'weather', the usual broch details can still be ascertained - entrance passage, stairs etc. But it is the views which made this a truly memorable experience.

Sat in an idyllic location on top of a small hill this brock remains with many features still visible, you can make out the passage between the walls and the steps leading up cubby holes in the wall and an intact entrance. I’m probably a little over enthusiastic with this one as it was my first ever Brock I’m sure theres more intact ones than this but I found this place very special. treehugger-uk Posted by treehugger-uk
