This is one of two Iron Age Brochs situated in Glen Beag, near Glenelg. Dun Telve broch, close by, is rather better preserved, but one third of the original 11-metre-high wall of Dun Troddan remains. Material was probably removed in 1722 to construct Bernera Barracks. A few finds were recovered during excavation in 1920, including stone whorls, schist discs and a bead
