Great place to visit, you can actually walk inside, setting was lovely by the sea with views of other island and not many there.
Stunning views of the island Of Rousay & the Eynhallow Sound. dating from the 1st millenium , the broch tower is still impressive. A nice display of artefacts at the visitor centre. Very impressive & well worth a visit.
A hidden gem. Stunning views over to Rousay. A beautiful beach. Very helpful attendant. A fascinating place. Well laid out and explained on the boards.
Another fantastic site from the iron age. You can wander freely in the broch and the houses around it. It really brings home how these people lived way back then.

loved this little site overlooking Rousay. is well preserved with a broch in the middle. well worth a visit, very informative gentleman in the ticket office, fantastic views, free car park
We went when the Broch was technically closed, so looked for seals, watched the sun set at 11:00 pm, and saw local tractors out working under the rising almost-full moon.
