  • Information

    Dun Carloway Broch is an Iron Age tower at Carloway on the Isle of Lewis. It is a spectacular example of a broch which means it is a structure built for defence purposes.

    The broch is really well preserved as in some parts the old wall reaches to 9m tall! Built during the 1st century BC, the broch was last inhabited around 1300 AD.

    Dun Carloway has a car park and visitor centre and can be found just 16 miles north west of Stornoway. Why not stop off at Lews Castle in Stornoway before heading to Carloway?
