I remember getting stopped by a foreign tourist who was meeting someone at what sounded like the broch. As we were at south lochside i merely pointed to it.

"no no, broch broch" he said to which i pointed again, "yes, that is the broch there". it wasn't until someone else came by that we realised he was meeting someone in baroq. :oops:
