Brochs are massive structures unique to the north and west of Scotland. They are circular, two-storey, drystone, structures, accessed by a single door at ground level. They can stand from 5 to 13 metres tall and were used as elaborate houses during the Iron Age. It is now believed that defence may have played some part, but they were more likely to have been built to impress, highlighting the owner's social status, wealth and power.
