|Description ||Already a over week into the build when I first got on site, I arrived on site to find the whole floor plan of the broch had been marked out on the ground in paint and a rough pattern of stones. This immediately forced a gasp of breath from me, acknowledgement of the sheer size of such a building project Brochs as ruins seem impressive, but as a pile of collapsed stone, or even a fairly well preserved example, such as Dun Telve in Glenelg or Dun Carloway on Lewis, I have never got that feeling of the 'bigger picture' as I did seeing those markings on the ground. This, it seems to me, is the best way to get a feel for scale and complexity.|
