Spittal Farm broch (Spital 2)

A grassy mound which was once dug into and chambers uncovered apparently. I'm pretty sure there is a short section of what is a lower course of wall showing through the grass.

I parked off the road somewhere around Achnamoine, walked up the track towards Langergill and then cut across the fields. Nothing too difficult but I did have to look for gates to access fields.

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.
