Dun Mor Broch, Tiree
The broch at Vaul/Bhalla was built around 60AD as a refuge. It is thought that those who built it and lived in it came from southern England. It was ca 7.5-9m high with a double wall 3-4m thick. Stairs in the cavity of the wall lead to 2-3 galleries at different levels. There was one entrance, on the east side, controlled from a guard's cell on the right of the entrance passage.
