Dun Troddan is one of the best-preserved examples of an Iron Age broch in Scotland, consisting of a round tower with dry-stone walls, parts of which survive to over 7m in height. In 1920, excavations revealed a hearth in the centre and places where timber posts once stood, supporting upper levels. Another well-preserved broch, Dun Telve, is situated only 500m away, but it is unknown if they were occupied at the same time.
