ND02 1 LANGWELL TULLOCH ('Langwell Water 1')

ND/0974 2231

A probable broch in Latheron, Caithness, in the valley of the Langwell Water, and now a much-mutilated mass of rubble; part of the curved outer face of the wall is visible on the south [1]. The remains of the structure appear to be sited on an artificial mound [1]. A large stone- and-turf enclosure next to the broch was recorded later [3].
