Dun an Sticar Review

At Newtonferry (Port nan Long) stands the remains of what was reputed to be the last inhabited broch in North Uist, Dun an Sticar. This defensive tower, reached by a causeway over the loch, was abandoned when the Vikings arrived in the 9th century and then reoccupied by Hugh Macdonald, a descendant of Macdonald of Sleat, until he reached an unpleasant end in 1602.
