    Dun Carloway Broch

     
    This large Iron Age "Broch" was built as a defensive residence for either important tribal leaders and their families or for other important community members. On the Isle of Lewis, it has a commanding and panoramic view over Loch Roag. Brochs were drystone circular buildings formed by two concentric walls. The best preserved broch in the Western Isles, standing about 43 feet high, Dun Carloway's double walls show how tiers of galleries were linked by stone staircases within the hollow walls. Traveling to the Isle of Lewis takes a bit of effort, but it is well worth the trip to visit this ancient site!
