The Caithness Broch Centre is a new museum in Auckengill, north-east Caithness. It is centred around two key themes: brochs and the communities associated with them. Brochs - tall imposing circular drystone towers built over 2000 years ago - are some of the most remarkable structures ever built in Britain. Caithness is the home of the broch and in certain areas, particularly around the north-east coast, the concentration of brochs is greater than anywhere else. These structures have dominated the landscape and influenced the lives of individuals and communities for centuries. The Caithness Broch Centre explores three key areas: the 19th- and early 20th-century communities who first excavated the brochs; the communities who lived in the brochs; and the legacies the brochs bring to the present day communities.
