ND15 1 ACHANARRAS (‘Achanarras Farm’)

ND/1511 5515

The site of a possible broch in Halkirk, Caithness, which in 1910 consisted of a grassy mound 7.6m (25ft) in diameter and 1.2m (4ft) high [2]. There were traces of a semicircular bank which might have been the scanty remains of the wall of half a broch [1]. The site no longer exists [3].
