The beautiful surroundings of Glen Cassley can be found a few miles NW of Lairg in Sutherland. The remains of a broch can be found on the SW slopes of these steep hills. The broch has visible standing walls with the most of the structure collapsed forming a debris field. The internal structure is difficult to discern, but the internal wall can be made out. The structure has been robbed of its stone in for later sheep pens built onto its south-eastern face. The eastern entrance can just be made out, with the associated northern guard chamber still intact. A cup marked slab was found nearby and is in the local museum.   JK
