Mousa Broch, Mousa

Standing 13m high, Mousa is Scotland's most impressive and best surviving Iron Age tower or broch. A broch is a round tower which had an inner and outer drystone wall which were about 5m thick in total. They were clearly both defensive and prestigious buildings. We now know that brochs were built in Shetland around 400-200BC.
