Entrance to Carn Liath Broch near Golspie

A view of the entrance to the Carn Liath Broch, located around 4 miles east-north-east of Golspie. Translating from the Gaelic as the 'Grey Cairn', its design and layout are quite typical of the Sutherland brochs. Dating back to the Iron Age, the broch was first excavated in the nineteenth century, under the oversight of the Duke of Sutherland.
