Broch of Aithsetter 3D Model
The Broch of Aithsetter, Shetland Isles, Scotland.
The broch is situated on a small promontory overlooking the sea, the site is protected by cliffs on its seaward sides, on the landward side there are defensive banks and ditches.
All that remains of the broch is a turf covered mound with a hollow at its center, but would have once (a couple of thousand years ago) been a small stone tower-like structure with people living in it.

The model was produced from Kite Aerial Photographs, there was a strong offshore wind which allowed photographing of the cliffs and steep ground beneath the broch.
