Caithness Broch Centre to open

From Leisure

The Caithness Broch visitor centre in the Highlands, Scotland has reopened to the public.

Formerly known as the Northlands Viking Centre, the updated facility will showcase the prehistory of the north coast of Caithness, focusing on the construction of brochs - defensive round towers built in the Iron Age.

An exhibit displaying 150 items, including gaming pieces, painted pebbles, spindle whorls and stone balls, donated by National Museums Scotland will tell visitors the story of the community from the establishment of the brochs 2,000 years ago to the present day.
