Even when it's windy, the walls are high enough to make a nice relaxed picnic quite possible.
This is such a wonderfully secluded and cozy valley, well worth the scary drive up the unfeasibly twisty-steep road to get here. It's a bit easier from Skye, via a slightly less twisty road, and with the added advantage of the spinning ferry.
Not good for wheelchairs, the incline is steep and uneven. It's close to the road though, about 20 yards, so quite visitable by those who can't easily walk far.
Dun Troddan Broch
…and just a mile or so along the road another spectacular broch- these are just fab! The wall height on this one is just a bit smaller than Dun Telve, but the walls are mega thick again. These are magnificent monuments and a great start to our hols.
This broch was excavated up to 1920 and some find including stone whorls, vitrified beads etc were made- all now in the National Museum of Scotland. Also found were a ring of post holes in the middle of the site that may have supported upper floors/roof.
