|History of site:||
Edin's Hall Broch sits within an earlier hillfort and dominates the valley of the Whiteadder. The broch and fort were probably constructed to control access to the nearby copper mines at Elba. A leaflet describing a circular walk to the broch is available at Tourist Information Centres.
