This photograph shows Dun Troddan, one of two Iron Age Brochs situated in Glen Beag, near Glenelg. About one third of the original 11 metre high wall still remains. The other broch, Dun Telve, situated close by, is rather better preserved. Material was probably removed from both brochs in 1722 to construct Bernera Barracks. A few finds were recovered during excavation in the early 1920s, including stone whorls, schist discs and a bead. Duncan Macpherson, the photographer, used this illustration in his book Lure of the West, published in 1950
