Upper Latheron Broch

Photos Here

The broch is positioned on a rocky outcrop, and its ruins are covered in grass. There are a few courses of stone from the original outer wall face showing, and there are traces of outbuildings.

Park in the small layby beside the broch just off the A9 and use the stile to access the field and the broch. This is a farm, so there may be animals in the field.

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.
