The Glenelg Brochs are actually situated in Glen Beag which is a short distance after the village of Glenelg. However, all the signposts direct you to the "Glenelg Brochs".

From Sheil Bridge it is about a 27 mile round trip to get to the Glenelg Brochs and this involves a drive over the Ratagan Pass with its spectacular views of the 5 Sisters of Kintail.

The Brochs are not complete, but parts of the walls stand 10 metres high and approximately 1/3 of the outer walls are almost complete. The brochs are still very interesting to visit and display the surprisingly refined construction techniques of the iron age.

If possible, we recommend visiting the Brochs around sunset when it is easy to let the timeless atmosphere of Glen Beag transport you back to the Iron Age.
