Dun Cor Broch, Durcha
Amazing where these things turn up. This broch is in someone's front garden! There isn't much to see, just a grassy mound. The broch was excavated and trenches dug back in the 90s, and it was confirmed as a broch which has had other stone work built on top of it during various ages.
As this broch is in someone's front garden, get permission for access before wandering over private land into their garden. There is plenty of space to park 100 yds down the single track road from the house.

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.
