Dun Feorlig broch, Skye

Dun Feorlig was built on a rocky outcrop right on the coast, and although it is heavily overgrown with grass, stonework is evident in one or two places.

You can park a few yards along the single track road and there is a gate into the field nearby allowing access to the broch site. I didn't try to climb the barbed wire fence, I found access down on the shore and climbed up the rocks. Wasn't too difficult, but you wouldn't want to slip and fall so take care.

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.
