(NO 491 349) Fort and Broch (NR).
OS 1:10,000 map, (1974).
The fort is oval measuring c 400' by 200' within the ruin of a wall 30' thick. The faces of the wall are of large carefully-laid blocks and the core of rubble, in which considerable quantities of vitrified stone have been noted.
An outer wall of the same character, but not so thick covers either end of the fort and a third is added on the SW.
The broch, now very much robbed and overgrown, is 35' in diameter within a wall 16' thick.
The whole summit is mutilated and bears four ruined ornamental structures apparently of recent origin.
