Snabrough Broch, Unst  3D Model
Snabrough Broch, Unst, Shetland Isles, Scotland. Snabrough broch is situated at the northern end of small freshwater loch (lake). The northern side of the broch is currently boggy ground while the south side is water. When the broch was built it may have formed an island within the loch. The broch site consists of a substantial stony mound with a hollow middle and an earthen bank on the landward side of the site. The hollow of the broch mound and the area between the mound and the bank contains the remains of further structures of later date.
In simplistic terms a broch is a stone tower built in the Iron Age, most brochs were occupied 2000 years ago.
Snabrough Broch fits into a multi-period archaeological landscape which can be seen in this linked model https://sketchfab.com/models/e3f65e76d66b4cab97a268968812bd16
