A record of our ancient Brochs, Hill-forts and Sculptured Stones of Scotland
Brochs, Forts and Stones studies: West Coast and Ross-shire brochs
This broch stands above Loch Alsh facing towards Eilean Donan Castle and with views towards the Skye Bridge. Much of the site remains standing with internal wall cells on two levels.
The broch stands on solid rock just above the Atlantic shoreline. The internal space is full of undisturbed debris to a depth of some 2m. Iron age dates were got from the scarcement.
