Achcoillenaborgie broch

Reports from the 19th and 20th centuries indicated that walls, an entrance passageway and a chamber were still visible. Owing to being robbed there is nothing visible now but a pile of rubble in the heather and bracken. This one is obviously in the line of sight communications chain leading inland from Baile Mhargaite.

Easy access, but not easy to find if you don't have a map and GPS. It's just off the single track road from Invernaver, but you can't see it from the road. There is parking nearby, marked on the map.

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.
