Description

The monument comprises the remains of a broch and fort of prehistoric date surviving partially as a series of grassed-over stone structures and earthworks, and partially as cropmarks visible on oblique aerial photographs.

The monument lies on Craig Hill at around 130m OD and commands extensive views over the surrounding area. The broch occupies the W and highest part of the site. It is represented by a wall some 5m wide enclosing an area some 12m in diameter with an E-facing entrance. About 16m E of the broch is an outwork comprising a substantial rampart which rises some 2m from the base of the accompanying ditch. A causeway across the ditch provides access

opposite the broch entrance. These features lie within a potentially earlier multivallate fort represented by a single upstanding rampart on the N and by a series of four curving cropmark ditches on the gentle E approach to the site which is now under cultivation. The rampart is difficult to trace on the S and W where natural topography

is such that a substantial rampart may not have been required.

At least three hut circles can be traced on a terrace N of the broch and numerous other irregularities in the interior may represent the remains of further buildings.

The area to be scheduled encompasses the visible remains and an area around them in which traces of associated activity may be expected to survive. It is irregular in shape with maximum dimensions of 280m E-W

by 150m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
