Greenhill Broch, Roster

The ruins of the broch are within a grassy mound, but there are sections of exterior wall showing in places which indicate the broch was around 64ft in diameter. It looks as if there is much still within the mound of archaeological value.

Access is a simple affair of accessing a farmer's field through a gate. However, if there is livestock in the field it would be common courtesy to let the farmer know your plans before disturbing his animals.

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.
