Full Description

On the east side of the Loth Burn, c.25m SSE of Carn Bran broch is a sub-circular rubble sheepfold. Given the close proximity of the sheepfold to the broch, it is likely that it has been constructed, at least partly, of broch material. The site was viewed from the other side of the river and closer inspection was not possible during this visit <1>.
