Burroughston Broch

The iron age building named Burroughston Broch can be found north east on the coast of Shapinsay. Because of the location of it you will probably have the place to yourself. The site is part excavated and is a similar structure to other broch’s in Orkney like the Broch of Gurness. The site  is unkempt and is surrounded by rough grass that really adds to the authenticity of the place. There is evidence of surrounding buildings around the site but none have been excavated yet.
