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...More

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.

It's not far from the road, and you get a stunning view that's surprisingly free from other people compared to more 'touristy' sites.

If you are looking for a less touristy experience with some of the best scenery in Skye, this is a "must do". It is an ancient broch on a small hill, about a 5 minute walk from the road/car park. The site signage is good,...More

The dun is an easy walk from the car park. I love visiting old hill forts and other ancient sites. There are some informative plaques that explain how it was built and how the folks lived there. You are able to walk some of the...More

This was an amazing stop, and a highlight of my time on Skye. A little climb up from the side of the road and it's like you're stepping back in time. The views are amazing from the top, and seeing the remaining stone structure was...More
