Broch of Borwick



It's in the guide books and on the maps.

Positioned on a colapsing cliff face, the rear of the Broch is lost but here's the front. You can step inside and see a few wall chambers, although a lot of the structure is collapsed.

Stop at Yesnaby for a perfect place to open up that flask of tea and have a sandwich.

Getting there:

The easiest way to get there is by parking up at Yesnaby just off the B9056 south of Skara Brae, you'll see the sign post. Once there, get out and walk north along the coastal cliff face till you see the Broch itself beside a small stack.

Watch out for randy bulls!
