How To Get There

Follow the A863 south out of Dunvegan for about 8 miles. Just before you enter the village of Struanmore there is a parking area on the western side of the road and the site is signed from here. Park here, cross the road and walk up the hill.

Every time I visit Dun Beag the weather is against me. This time I just managed to snap some usable pictures before the clouds and rain came down. It's not just Dun Beag - it seems to happen on Skye as a whole. But then that's part of the beauty of the place. i Just need to remember to take some faster film for the camera next time!

Dun Beag is regarded as the best preserved broch on Skye. You can see the remains of the stairway, a side cell and the gallery built into the 4 meter thick walls. These still stand to a height of around 5 or 6 feet. Much fallen masonry is still evident at the site, particularly on the eastward side of the broch.
