West Watten broch (Green Hill broch; Wester Watten broch)

Nothing to see here other than a mown grassy hump. The broch is under the grass but there isn't anything to see.

As the broch site is in a private garden there is no access, and there isn't anywhere to park anyway. There is nothing to see other than what you see in the two photos below so perhaps leave the homeowners alone to enjoy their privacy with this one.

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.
