Dun Dornaigil Broch
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The broch has an unusual low entrance topped by a huge triangular lintel stone. The low entrance passage would have required any invaders to crawl, and they would have been picked off by defenders using spear holes in the passage roof. The interior of the broch is filled with stone rubble from the walls.
To reach Dun Dornaigil you need to take the minor road down the east shore of Loch Strathmore.
NB The site is also known as Dun Dornadilla.
