Weems Castle, South Ronaldsay

On the landward side on a small headland known as the Castle Taing are two concentric walls or ramparts which are more than 12 feet wide. These are thought to be the defensive ramparts protecting a broch. The site extends over an area 60-70 feet in diameter

The remains are completely overgrown and there is no sign of any foundations. It is difficult to make out the building, although some walling stands to a height of 5 feet.

Some years ago, a grooved stone, possibly a net-sinker, was found embedded in the outworks.
