  • But of a long slow drive to get there but it’s worth the effort. Wish there had been more historical detail available to read at the site.

  • The Broch may be 2500 years old! It stands in an imposing position above the bend of a river in a truly remote Scottish glen. It blows my mind how such a tall, solid structure could have been built...

  • Worth a trip down the single track road to get here. Stunning views. In two minds whether I'd like to see it excavated to show off its full scale or left to show how it has stood over the centuries
  • If you only visit one broch today, then this could be the one for you. Be responsible. A broch is not just for Christmas.
