Strathmore Hope Road, Highland, Scotland


View the impressive remains and distinctive entrance of a broch tower. Dun Dornaigil, also known as Dun Dornadilla, is an excellent example of a broch, a kind of drystone roundhouse, found only in Scotland and dating back at least 2,300 years. The broch tower stands to an impressive 7m high in places, though when it was complete it may have been twice as high. Its distinctive entrance, with massive triangular lintel, is visually striking and a reminder of the status and prestige of the brochs inhabitants. The brochs interior is filled with rubble from the upper part of the broch, and is now inaccessible. Dun Dornaigil is free to visit and open year-round.
