Dùn Chàrlabhaigh

Doune Carloway Broch is one of the best preserved Brochs in Scotland and is a site of national and international significance. Urras Oighreachd Chàrlabhaigh are working with partners including Urras nan Tursachan to consider how the Broch site could be improved or developed. The work of the Outer Hebrides Trust and initiatives such as the Hebridean Way provide a context for the Carloway Broch being an obvious priority for development and it both fits within the Trust’s strategic plan and has support from the local community.


Community Enterprise have been engaged, through Highlands and Islands Enterprise, to support Urras Oighreachd Chàrlabhaigh to pull together a strategic plan for the Broch site and we are keen that those with an interest in this idea have the opportunity to contribute their thoughts.

If you have any ideas, please feel free to send them direct to Douglas at Community Enterprise ( or 01506 862227). We will also be holding a meeting of those interested in tourism and the Broch site on Wednesday 5th June at 4pm in Carloway School Annex. If you would like to attend, please contact Sally Reynolds ( or 01851 64381) to reserve a place.

The Community LED by Energy Champions project is being run by two Community Land Trusts working in partnership to offer free support to residents of both Carloway Estate and Galson Estate on the Isle of Lewis
