Overview

Admire a pair of 2,000-year-old tall broch towers set in a beautiful glen. 

Dun Telve and Dun Troddan are both outstanding brochs, in the beautiful valley of Gleann Beag. They are unusually close together for brochs, standing just 500m apart. 

Their excellent state of preservation attracted attention from an early date, but they are also noteworthy for their design, scale and quality of build.  Dun Telve still stands to more than 10m in places. Dun Troddan is shorter, at 7.6m, but is better preserved.
