The third best preserved broch in Scotland (after Mousa Broch in Shetland and the nearby Dun Telve Broch), Dun Troddan's wall stands at almost 25 feet at its heighest point. As described by recent visitors, "On the left of the roofless entrance passage there is a corbelled guard-cell. In the thickness of the broch wall...three galleries survive along with a stone stair that rises to a level passage."
