|Description ||This broch is on private ground in the gardens of a house in the village of Liff, just outside Dundee. Permission MUST be sought from the owner to view. The broch is very difficult to discern initially, being heavily overgrown, but the general layout is visible. It forms part of what was described as a "multi-phase occupation site comprising a promontory fort, a palisaded enclosure, a broch and a souterrain", and was excavated by D.B.Taylor between 1958 and 1967. The only pre-broch find was a small perforated bone plate. The broch itself was of 12m diameter with walls 5-6m thick. Remains of a mural chamber or stairway on the north were found. The entrance was to the south west.|
