This very early well preserved structure is located on the edge of a loch in the outskirts of Lerwick. It is a large round covered stone construction surrounded by outer walls. Once inside the perimeter wall, the area covered is quite large, with a number of passages and places to explore. This is one of the largest of this many structures of this type; only found in Shetland. Worth visiting as the location is quite easy to reach

I walked from central Lerwick. Weather can catch you so wear suitable clothes!!

There is an information board. Good footwear needed. Some of the tunnels are tough to get through and I’m not huge!

This is a great place to explore, there are markers to read and you can go mostly anywhere in the Broch. Its easy to find and get to if you are in Lerwick.

Shetland is dotted with these Brochs (stone-age round turret-like structures - this one is easily accessible on the edge of Lerwick (30-min walk from the harbour if you're coming in on a cruise ship).

It's not the tallest (Isle of Mousa for that), but it is large (wide) and includes some remnants of small buildings around the edge. It's also set next to a small loch (lake) though photographers should try to avoid the warehouses in the distance!

It's free though you'll need to park at the large Tesco a few minutes away.

Worth a short stop!

Close to the town centre and flat access to this well maintained site. We parked in Tesco’s opposite and crossed over the road.

An interesting Broch in the middle of town. I enjoyed walking around the Broch itself, even if it was reconstructed to the point that it’s a jumping mix of modern and old. But, it’s neat and free!

I am not sure how to describe this experience. It looks super small. Okay, a few stones and steps. No big deal. But somehow everything changes as you enter the broch.

Takes you back 100s of years and kinda resets you. What a humbling experience.

Very interesting site of how the people of Shetland used to live many years ago. Well maintained for something so near to a city centre.

In amazing condition - we’ll preserved. Interesting history.
Well worth a visit.
