Edin's Hall Broch is only accessible on foot, either from Abbey St Bathans or walking via the Elba suspension footbridge from the parking area near the A6112. Both routes are about 2,5 miles and involve some uphill hill walking.
Broch's are more common in Northwest Scotland and only a few have been found in Southern Scotland. Edin's Hall Broch dates from the 2nd century and was built within an old Iron Age hillfort whose remains surround the broch. The circular remains accessed via an entrance passage contain a number of chambers, cells and the remains of a stone stairway.
