i love places like this. the broch is small and very much in ruin but it's absolutely worth a visit even if only for the view of skye you'll get from the top! the walk up is very easy. we visited here in january and were the only people there - though have never seen anybody here whilst driving past. you can easily see this and be back to your car in less than an hour.

It’s not too taxing to walk up to but it won’t be suitable for small kids or people with mobility issues. The views from the top are great.

Although not the best example there is enough of it left to be good. I give it 5 because I really like stuff like this. There is a car park and a short walk up a hill. Lots of sheep droppings to avoid.

Stopped here on a tour, decent size parking lot, sheep milling around with lots of little sheep dodo on the walk up so watch where your walking. Was interesting to see, not much else to do other than to walk up for a look and then back down. I'd say you don't need more than an hour here.

As ruins go, and there's not much left, it's impressive that a structure of over 1900 years is still there... somehow...

Nice view, and with some imagination you visualise how it must have been.

Not to far from the main road and its an easy walk, that means if you don't mind walk up a hill, but tot suitable for wheelchair. Don't let your dog off the leash . There is a risk the farmer will shoot him 😂 atleast a sighn sais.

Good stop for on the way. Nice !

Its not a steep walk up but well worth it when you get to the top. Great views from every angle.
Small carpark just across the road bit can ger busy with tour buses.

Great little Gem, easy access, easy short walk up the hill and then the views are fabulous. It would work as an excellent filler if you have less than an hour to spare.

Small car park on opposite side of the road. Take track up the hill (easiest route goes around to the left and up to the back of the broch). Extremely well kept, excellent information boards and brilliant view! If you're lucky you might just see an eagle!

We too walked to the top of the ruins and had great views of the area! So peaceful and it just renewed your spirit! Of course there were sheep everywhere...I just loved it.
Very very nice, worth the while!

This broch is well worth a visit. Climb to the top and check out the amazing construction of the broch with it's double walls that housed a staircase inside. We met a ewe with her lamb inside the broch. Lovely. They inspected us while we took their photos, then they literally climbed the wall and left the broch. If you wander uphill some more, you will find a site where there must be some experimental archaeology going on. These stacks are not ancient. But interesting to see anyway. I think that students are exploring how the ancients built with dry stone. This Broch is a must see for anyone interested in the history of Skye. Recommended.
