Clickimin Broch Shetland 15494JHP 
 Clickimin Broch Iron Age Stone Built Lerwick Scottish Island Shetland lies about 1m SW of the town and is situated on what is now a peninsular of land into a small loch although originally the location would have been an island reached by a causeway. This dry stone walled building possibly from the Iron Age sited on an earlier Bronze Age structure may have been a fort or fortified farmhouse with walled ring fortifications surrounding a tower and is an example of a style of construction unique to Scotland.
