Clachtoll Broch

A wide range of organisations and individuals care for the historic environment across the private, public and voluntary sectors.

Organisation:Coigach and Assynt Living Landscape Partnership
Project title:Clachtoll Broch

Clachtoll Broch is a scheduled monument in Sutherland and one of the most iconic monuments in northern Scotland.  It was threatened with collapse, and its deteriorating condition was presenting hazards to visitors.  Part of the Coigach and Assynt Living Landscape Partnership, a project involving 14 partner organisations and led by the Scottish Wildlife Trust was created.  Site works were undertaken by AOC Archaeology in summer 2017 and received wide, positive coverage in the media. The project has resulted in the stabilisation of the broch, community engagement with the site, and a host of exciting archaeological findings.

This project is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. It is also supported by Historic Environment Scotland, SSE, the Pilgrim Trust, the Robert Kiln Charitable Trust, and Highland Council through the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund. We are grateful to Scottish Wildlife Trust for administrative support.
