A must see in Lerwick
Nov 2021 • Friends
Recommended to us by one of the locals and was definitely worth the visit. Got some lovely photos there. Pony and horse out front added to the beauty of the place. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Lerwick.

Hard to spot, but worth it
Oct 2021
Close to Tesco and opposite the Sound Garage, the broch blends in with the surroundings and wasn't easy to spot. Very old and full of character and much more complete than some.

Well worth a visit.
Oct 2021
A great chance to see how life was many years ago. You can go inside and get a scale of the building and surrounding features.
It's worth going back at night to see it lit up as well. Only 5 - 10min walk from town centre.

Worth a visit
Oct 2021 • Family
Stoped here on our last day in Lerwick, it’s free and worth the visit. Kids loved running around through the tunnels adults liked watching and taking in the history… parking across the road by the garage… good place for a picnic to wait for the ferry..

A good example of a big broch
Oct 2021
We were too late in the season to get out to Mousa, so this was a convenient and more-readily-accessible alternative - probably the '3rd-best broch in the world'?

A wonderful historical treasure
Sep 2021
We were a little disappointed with the amount of information around the site and it appears to have been buried by local developments. Nowhere obvious to park for the visit...except Tesco and I would imagine that it would be very difficult o visit if you were less than able.

Fascinating broch
Aug 2021
This is an unusual broch in that it has surrounding structures as well. The broch itself is very well preserved and it is fascinating and very enjoyable to wander around. There is some information provided but I was lucky to visit in a tour so our guide gave up more information as well. And it's free and there are no COVID restrictions to worry about!

An expansive, well preserved and well maintained historic site. One criticism would be a slight lack of information boards within the site itself

A history lesson.

Walk from centre of Lerwick into 2400 years ago. Imagine the work effort all those years ago to stay safe and warm

Best broch to see
Jul 2021
Although the Mousa broch is the most complete (but currently closed) broch, Clickimin must be the most interesting and is open all hours. The central ruined broch tower is about 4m high and is surrounded by a circular dry stone walled courtyard enclosing the remains of ancient houses. The enclosure also includes a "blockhouse" positioned just inside the entrance as a further defensive platform to bombard anyone attacking the entrance. Don't miss it!
