Dun Carloway Broch


Dun Carloway Broch


It’s no doubt because I’m the son of a history teacher, but I love being in places of historical significance, and the Isle of Lewis certainly delivers on that front. Dun Carloway is one of Scotland’s best preserved Iron Age brochs, a stone tower built to keep livestock and to house families around two thousand years ago. I’ve visted Dun Carloway three our four times now, in different seasons and in different conditions, and it’s incredibly moving. Its main wall is thirty feet high still.

These towers are unique to the Scotland, but fascinatingly hundreds were built within a few hundred years, all over mainland Scotland and the islands, although mostly in what are now Scotland’s remote places – islands such as the Herbides, Orkney and Shetland and mainland Sutherland and Caithness.
