Broch of Burland

Broch of Burland

Where then is this remarkable broch, sitting atop precipitous cliffs for the last two millennia? I was surprised when I learned it's only a few miles south of Lerwick; located approximately one mile south-west of Brindister Loch. Archaeologist Simon Clarke has an entry on his blog interpreting the broch's features.

Please be aware that the broch's entrance is perilously close to a cliff edge.
