Dun Troddan Broch
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The main entrance is set at right angles to the stairs within the walls, so any intruder would have to progress around the wall before being able to access the wall cavity.
Another measure of defence was provided by a small guard chamber immediately beside the entrance. As you look at the broch interior walls you will notice two ledges, which probably provided support for interior timber floors.
About 500 metres west is Dun Telve, one of the best-preserved brochs in the Highlands. It is well worth a combined trip to see both brochs.
