Kintradwell Broch (Cinn Trolla)

Sited on the coast just a few miles north of Brora, Kintradwell, or Cinn Trolla, remains in reasonably good condition for a broch. It has chambers, surviving walls, the ruins of outbuildings surrounding the main site, an entrance that still stands, and interior walls in fairly good condition.

Access is via a gate to a farmer's fields so please leave the gate unobstructed. There is parking at Brora Golf Club and you can walk from there, but it's a long walk.

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.
