‪Not that easy to find. Half hour walk from the little parking space at Vaul. The ground is quite boggy in places. The broch is perched up on a rocky knoll overlooking the sea, and the views are wonderful. It would be quite easy to walk past it. There's an informative signboard by the stile on the way to Dun Mor, relating its rather surprising origins. ‬

‪Reasonably well preserved base with enough of the double walls to walk around and for kids to get an idea what the intact building might have been like. But the location is awesome, the walk to get there is gorgeous with a good chance of seeing an otter or two. The check out the rock formations on the shore beneath the Broch.‬

‪Dun Mor Broch is just a short walk from the stunning beach at Vaul Bay. The bottom level is very well preserved and you can see the start of the stairs that would have originally led to the upper level. Well worth a visit.‬

‪Pleasant walk around the coast from Vaul Beach to the Broch, watch out for inquisitive seals. Lovely renovated black houses. ‬

‪Definitely a historically interesting spot with beautiful. It's easy to reach on the way to the Ringing Stone and worth the small detour! The path can be a little boggy so maybe avoid if the weather is bad or if you don't have decent shoes!‬

‪Quite a small broch, but enough of it is left to get a good idea of the layout. I would walk from the eastern end near Vaukl‬

‪We visited the broch as a short side-track off a trail from Vaul to the Ringing Stone on the north coast of the island. There is parking on a grassy area opposite a couple of newly restored Tiree Black Houses and a path leads from here down towards the sea. It’s easy to find the broch near the start of the walk, despite the marker posts not being too obvious, as one of them does stick out on the skyline next to the raised ground where the ruin is located.

The terrain was a bit boggy in this area and at other parts of the walk so walking boots are recommended.

We were surprised at how much of the structure remains having just expected to find the foundations at best. It’s not in the same condition as Dun Carloway, Isle of Lewis however there is a substantial structure which includes the remnants of a staircase which would have led to one of the upper levels of the building.

It was fully excavated in the 1960’s by Euan Mackie and carbon dated finds (which are now at the Hunterian Museum in Glasgow) indicate that the current structure was built around 60 AD. The site appears to have been occupied as early as the 5th or 6th Century BC although not continuously and eventually abandoned around the 3rd Century AD.

The setting looks out towards the Isles of Rum and Eigg and nearby to the west of the site is a secluded beach which is a perfect spot for relaxing if it’s a sunny day. This is accessed by firstly heading slightly south and skirting around the inlet since there is a cliff edge due west. The beach is worth exploring to see several stand-alone rocks lining one side and it’s possible to follow sheep tracks up the western bank of the inlet to look across to the broch.
