I wanted to get across to this dun but was warned by locals the sands were hard to judge and that the previous evening someone, not me, had had to rescued from the sands slightly further to the north. When I'm here next, I'll try again.

However like Beveridge, even looking from a safe distance, this looks like it might have been a Broch, the builders taking advantage of stones already there.

Next time.
