Dun Ard An T-Sabhail broch, Skye

Another broch with a few interesting features. There is a chamber, you can make out the entrance, and original stonework in the walls stands a few feet high in places.

The broch is built on high ground with some dangerous cliffs around the site. I found parking on the verge at the bottom of the hill below the broch, found a gate through the fence and made my way up the hill. Be careful, it's built in a dangerous place.

 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.
