Parked at HY 3276 2845, knocked at house but no answer.jonglew24/02/2019
An easy walk on a track, then grassy paths to a nice summit with a grassed over cairn. Not much left of the broch. Parked up the track by the house, knocked on the door but no-one at home to ask permission, so not sure what the response would be normally.Gill24/02/2019
