Watenan South Broch

This one was surprisingly difficult to find. On the map it looked as if it was impossible to miss, so I didn't take care with my planning, and didn't have a map with me. I had my phone and there was an internet connection, so I checked maps online and eventually found it. You can't really see it until you're standing in it, and even then you'd only know it was a broch if you were looking for it. You can park by the start of the loch and walk from there.

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.
