Upper Borgue Broch

Photos Here

The broch is sited immediately behind Upper Borgue farm buildings. As late as 1910 it was reported to be very well preserved, with the entrance practically intact. However, all that is evident now is a grassy pile of rubble with just a short section of wall visible.

Find parking on the A9 and use the track to Borgue Loch. This is a working estate, so please keep to the track.

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.
