Watenan North Broch

Another grassy mound, but there is stonework showing through in places. You can park by the south shores of Loch Watenan and walk from there. Depending on your route, you may have to ask the farmer for access through his farm. If you walk along the shores of the loch, that may not be a problem. There is a stile over the fence into the broch site, so take the time to find it to ensure no damage to property.

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.
