Port Moluag

Hardly a port, a mere indentation in the coastline just north of the line of low cliffs, with a stony beach to land on. Walk up the hill a bit, then left to Tirefour (Tirfuir) Broch. Built in the first century AD, it is perched on the cliffs overlooking the Lynn of Lorne, surely a defensive position. It is not as well preserved, or as high, as the Broch at Vaul on Tiree, but it is a broch nonetheless. So you can get some idea of what these strange iron age structures looked like. You can't get between the double walls, there is a fence barring the way. But it is a fine airy spot from which to contemplate.
