Skelbo Wood Broch

Photos Here

There isn't much left of this broch, but its rubble is still there below the undergrowth, through which you can make out wall mounds and see occasional original stone rubble.

Access is very simple, from the car park in Skelbo Wood, which is just off the A9 about a mile or so north of the Dornoch turn off, and walking a short distance to the broch.

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.
