This Scheduled Monument is a rare example of a lowland broch (fortification), and is not the easiest place to access. Getting there involves a trek of about 2.3km, with the trail climbing about 80m over the last half of the walk (quite steeply as you get close to the broch, it’s on a hill after all…). Wear good boots!
There is limited free parking (for about 6 cars) at W3W: reef.sonic.bonus
Take the track from the car park, and where the track forks, take the track down to the left. If you take the track to the right you will have to paddle across a ford, while the track to the left leads you to the wonderfully wobbly Elba suspension bridge to cross the river. From there the route is clearly signed.
This a Historic Environment Scotland site so TOAL from outside the site.
