Account of the Excavation of a Broch near Craigcaffie, Inch Parish, Wigtownshire, known as the Teroy Fort
Burnt Bone, Rotary Quern, Iron Charcoal, Artefacts, Pottery, Stairway
The broch is located on a round rocky prominence and survives to a height of only two and a half feet. The guard chamber survives on the right side of the entrance but does not survive on the left. The division of the guard-chamber into two\r\ncompartments is a peculiar feature, also the facing of its walls with slabs. The wall has been largely removed and it was not possible to determine the position of the stairway. There was no evidence of lengthy occupation and artefacts included some pottery, the upper stone of a rotary quern, a lump of iron, charcoal and burnt bone.
