Kilearnan Broch (Allt A'Choire Mhoir)

There is nothing left now other than a pile of rubble. No portion of the inner wall was visible when visited, but the lowest course of the outer face can be seen in places.

Access is simple enough, with plenty of space to park. You can take the Glen Loth single track road from the A9 or from Kildonan Station in the Strath of Kildonan, and the broch is only 100 yards or so from the parking area. This road through Glen Loth isn't snow cleared, and it is not suitable for caravans.

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.
