This visitor centre is located on the hillside next to the Doune Broch, one of the best preserved Iron Age brochs in Scotland.
The Doune Broch Visitor Centre is found close to a large sea loch on the Isle of Lewis, and aims to promote the understanding of this magnificent structure.
One of the best preserved of its kind in Scotland, the origin of Doune Broch and its precise use is still not clear.
The visitor centre houses The Chamber Scenes from the Broch display, and fascinating interpretation boards which explore the broch’s history and its importance to the local community throughout history.
