I enjoyed my visit although it was not possible to see the museum but the Broch was fascinating. You are able to go inside, if you're short or prepared to go on your knees. Good feeling of what it would have been like and how the double walls worked.
I remember enjoying it years ago and when we went as a family I was not disappointed. My wee boys loved running around it, exploring the tunnels and climbing the stairs. Sure its relatively small, but it is amazing history and fun for families to explore. Without question if your in the area you should certainly visit it! And wonderful... 更多

You'll see the Broch from miles away on the road, but only when you climb up will you be able to appreciate how really impressive this construction is.

This was a very interesting place to visit, there doesn't seem to be much information on these types of buildings but there are some good speculations.

These ruins have been well preserved as it can be. You can ramble over what's left of the interior and get a feel for what it was like. There... 更多
It appears that the buildings in this area became larger and more prominent around 500 BC. The brochs are the result – circular, dry-stone towers which belonged to the local chieftains. It is not sure the nature of life then so these could also be defensive towers. The best remaining example of a broch in Lewis is the one at... 更多
