Great little Gem, easy access, easy short walk up the hill and then the views are fabulous. It would work as an excellent filler if you have less than an hour to spare.

Small car park on opposite side of the road. Take track up the hill (easiest route goes around to the left and up to the back of the broch). Extremely well kept, excellent information boards and brilliant view! If you're lucky you might just see...More

We too walked to the top of the ruins and had great views of the area! So peaceful and it just renewed your spirit! Of course there were sheep everywhere...I just loved it. Very very nice, worth the while!

This broch is well worth a visit. Climb to the top and check out the amazing construction of the broch with it's double walls that housed a staircase inside. We met a ewe with her lamb inside the broch. Lovely. They inspected us while we...More

It's not far from the road, and you get a stunning view that's surprisingly free from other people compared to more 'touristy' sites.

If you are looking for a less touristy experience with some of the best scenery in Skye, this is a "must do". It is an ancient broch on a small hill, about a 5 minute walk from the road/car park. The site signage is good,...More

The dun is an easy walk from the car park. I love visiting old hill forts and other ancient sites. There are some informative plaques that explain how it was built and how the folks lived there. You are able to walk some of the...More

This was an amazing stop, and a highlight of my time on Skye. A little climb up from the side of the road and it's like you're stepping back in time. The views are amazing from the top, and seeing the remaining stone structure was...More

This beautiful little broch in a paddock surrounded by sheep on a lone hill was wonderful. You don't need a lot of time but if the weather is good, have a sit and imagine what life may have been like in the Iron Age. The...More

It's very easy to get lost in your imagination about how things would have been 1600-2000 years ago when Dun Beag came to be. But for a small infoboard, the area is untouched by man (excluding of course the broch itself) with stunning views over...More
