Broch at Brims, Hoy

The Broch of Brims (c)Frank Bradford

The Skeo Broch and its village stand on an exposed low hillock overlooking the sea. The area covers around half an acre and is littered with the debris of what was once a large structure, the overall diameter being around 60 feet. It stands on a natural ridge and an enclosing bank makes this a large site.

A shard of an Iron Age pot has been found here as well as a highly polished piece of haematite and a small trimmed-off antler tine.
