Carloway Broch, Lewis, is one of the best preserved in Scotland and was probably constructed around AD 100. Brochs are unique to Scotland (mainly north and west) and were most likely used as fortifications and farmhouses. However, no-one can be absolutely certain and much is still to be learned about these amazing buildings.

Burghead Chambered Well, Moray, was discovered in the 1800's. It is almost certainly of Dark Age provenance and clearly had some ceremonial significance.

Smoo Cave, Durness, is a must see when on the north coast. It is rich in geology, archaeology and wildlife and it is thought to have been inhabited as far back as mesolithic times. Wear sturdy footwear and take the wee boat into the third chamber - it's worth it!

There's nothing like a spot of fresh air when you're playing tennis. We wonder if Andy Murray would like to practice on this rather out of the way loch-side court on Harris! Random - but wonderful!
