Fodor's Review

One of the best-preserved Iron Age brochs (circular stone towers), a fortified residence of a type exclusive to Scotland, Dun Carloway dominates the scattered community of Carloway. The mysterious tower was probably built around 2,000 years ago as protection against seaborne raiders. The nearby Dun Broch Centre explains more about the broch and its setting.
