The Blackhouse Village on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland.

Cairnpapple Hill is one of the most important prehistoric sites in mainland Scotland. It was used from about 3,000 BC to 1400 BC firstly as a ceremonial site then several centuries later as a burial site. From the summit of Cairnpapple Hill we can enjoy stunning views over central Scotland, and as far as Goat Fell, on Arran, on a good day.

This is a broch, a fortified home built during the Iron Age, some 2,100 years ago. Brochs, unique to Scotland, are dry-stone, twin-walled, round towers up to 30m across and 15m high. Part of a reproduction broch was built at Strathyre, Scotland by the West of Scotland Dry Walling Association using only tools used around 2000 years ago: A team of 20 spent five days constructing a 5m high section of the Dun Lubnaig Broch.
