Dun Boreraig Broch, Isle of Skye
Coastal path behind 21 Husabost
Road north off B884
Dun Boreraig Broch is located on a headland 100 feet above sea level about ½ mile south-east of the township of Boreraig on the west side of Loch Dunvegan. The rocky outcrop upon which the broch has been built is 20 to 30 feet above the surroundings scrub land. Even in its ruined condition it remains a prominent landmark from the north and south. The broch measures 35 feet in diameter internally with walls up to 13 feet in thickness. The outer face of the wall varies in height from 2 feet on the north to 9 feet on the south and south-east. 2,000 years ago the wall would have been as high as 30 feet. Most of the interior is filled with fallen rubble up to 5 feet deep. Traces of a gallery in the wall can just abot be defined round the whole sircuit of the broch.
A circular muralchamber about 5 feet in diameter to the right of the entrance has the appearance of a guard cell.
Overlooking the broch you will also find a ruined building of uncertain date and purpose to explore. Lovely views on a clear day.
