Dun Troddan, Glenelg

Although this photograph has been titled Dun Telve, Glenelg, it is in fact Dun Troddan, another Iron Age Broch 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
