The Orkneys – The Broch of Gurness.

The Broch is an Iron Age tower that was ten metres high! It had religious significance, housed the clan leader and his family and served as a major defensive structure against attack. It dates back 2500 years.

Around the Broch was a whole Iron Village. It had a fantastic view out to sea and across to the land the other side.
