Backies (Broch) by GLADMAN The sheer scale of this broch is quite overwhelming... as was the weather, to be fair. This is the entrance, obviously.

This looks superb. Nicely atmospheric conditions too. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Reading Les's notes, seems like a lot of rubble from excavations, hiding intact stonework. A broch on the cusp, would love to see it stabilised, even rebuilt before it falls, which Canmore thinks inevitable. A very fine example, ta for the pix. spencer Posted by spencer
