Brochs at Glenelg


Hall   2013-07-01 64

Just outside Glenelg are two of the best-preserved Pictish brochs in Scotland. Built sometime in the last century BC or first century the broch is a uniquely Scottish building type now generally believed to built as living accomodation for small communities. They represent a remarkable level of architectural sophistication with hollow walls designed to minimise weight and maximise heat retention in the cold climate.
