Yarrows broch (South Yarrows, Cairn of Yarrows, Broch of Yarrows)

Recommended Posts

There is much history here. The settlement around the broch was probably built as extentions onto the structure after it was completed. The second entrance was most probably pushed through at this time. The broch is sited on a promontory jutting into the loch and there was originally a ditch separating the broch from the shore.

Access is easy and well marked out, and there are stiles and gates to make accessing the broch a family affair. The broch is in a ruinous state however, so care should be taken around the structure, and take note that the interior of the broch is now marshy and waterlogged owing to the loch being dammed and the water levels raised.
