Broch Market Day

Painting by David Simon

At its peak the Castle Craig broch may have stood up to 9m high, and highly visible for miles around. Protected within the great walls was a multi-level round house, the most complex and sophisticated architecture of the Scottish Iron Age tradition. The occupants of the broch not only commanded huge amounts of labour for its construction, but also exploited political connections to trade with the Romans.
