HU46 1 BURGA WATER 1 HU/480641

Possible broch in Nesting, a grass-covered mound 2.44 -2.71 m (8-9 ft.) high situated on the larger of two islets in the loch of that name; it is about 100m from the south and south-west shores. It was not visited by the Commission's investigators, but a later report [1] describes a mound about 15m in diameter containing a circular building with an apparent entrance on the east. No causeway has been seen.
