Fascinating broch site - visited in October during Covid. We were the only visitors which was a rare luxury. Short walk from the adjacent car park. Worth a brief visit.

Just a short walk from the car park gave good views of the surroundings. The Broch itself was shrouded in scaffolding to prevent further deterioration prior to restoration, but don't let this put you off.

Interesting building although when we visited it was covered in scaffolding. It was a Sunday and the visitors centre was closed so we were given very limited information from the boards by the actual building. Very frustrating that they don't open the centre

Carloway Broch shows how houses were once built and give a brilliant view back in time. At the time of our visit the Broch itself was closed for repair works but you can still view the unique construction with a wide cavity wall and relatively small living space centrally. Well worth a visit.

It’s incredible that Pictish people were able to construct a structure like this. A double wall building with three floors - now only part of the stone parts remaining. Be aware that it is a short walk over tough ground up hill to view the structure and when I visited last month it was closed to access the interior due to some conservation work ongoing. Worth a quick visit if you are on the way heading west to see some of the beautiful beaches on the west coast.
