'Malcolm MacLeod's Memorial'
Brochel Area Information

Brochel Castle
ARNISH (Norse: Eagle's point)
This is the most northerly settlement on Raasay approachable by road. By the road between Arnish and Brochel stands a memorial to a man who could be said to epitomise single minded determination. The inscription reads:

CALUM'S ROAD This former footpath to Arnish - a distance of 1 miles -was widened to a single track road with passing places and prepared for surfacing by Malcom MacLeod, B.E.M.(1911 - 1988) South Arnish. He accomplished the work single handedly over a period of ten years

BROCHEL (Norse: Rock fort)
Brochel Castle stands overlooking a bay on the eastern side of the Isle of Raasay.
