Located on a small islet in the Loch of Clickimin, a half-mile (1 km) west southwest of Lerwick on the Shetland Mainland is the well-preserved and easily accessible Clickimin Broch. Now connected to the southern shore of the loch, the 20m (32-foot) diameter broch was a Pictish fortification occupied from c.700 BC to the 5th or 6th centuries AD and some parts still stand 5m (16 feet) in height. Originally a Bronze-Age farmstead, the site developed into an Iron-Age ring fort then a broch and later into a wheel-house settlement. The site was first uncovered in the 1850s and professionally excavated a hundred years later.
The site is in the care of Historic Scotland.
