HY3730 : Rousay: Midhowe Broch

taken 6 years ago, near to Westness, Orkney Islands, Great Britain

Rousay: Midhowe Broch
Rousay: Midhowe Broch
Occupying a spectacular stretch of the Rousay coast, the broch was built some time around the first century BC, and its position very much points to defensive purpose - a ditch has been cut around the landward side of the broch, and it nestles between two small inlets on the seaward side.

Brough Head is in the distance.
