Underhoull Broch, Unst Shetland Isles 3D Model
Underhoull Broch, Unst, Shetland Isles, Scotland.
This broch dates to the Iron Age and was built sometime around 500BC - 200AD, The broch was a tower which people lived in. Other examples of brochs show they had partially hollow walls. All that remains of the broch here is a stony mound with a hollow in the middle. Most of the stone from the broch has likely been reused in later structures in the surrounding landscape. Underhoull broch has two defensive banks and ditches and the remains of some later structures built against the outer one. The broch is situated at the top of a slope overlooking Lunda Wick (Bay) and across the Bluemull Sound to Yell, the broch sits in a rich archaeological landscape which was heavily exploited in the Viking and Norse periods.
