Croick Broch

Not much left of this one unfortunately. It's remarkable in that it was built with much larger rough unhewn boulders than is usual, which being of no use in stone dykes and other buildings are still on site. Faint traces of the inner wall can be tracked in places.

Take the single track road from Ardgay to Croick, park up outside the church, and use the gate through the stone dyke just a few yards along the road to access the broch.

Disclaimer: Some brochs were built with military defensive purpose, and as such can be situated in extremely dangerous areas, such as on the edge of cliffs and ravines. Additionally, these are Iron Age structures, most of them in ruins, and they are extremely hazardous, with crumbling stone walls and hidden chambers. Existing walls, lintels, and passages could collapse at any time. The information here is provided free but it is your responsibility to ensure its accuracy, ensure your own safety, and acquire permissions for access where necessary. Accessing brochs is done entirely at your own risk.
