Later this month (stay tuned for the date) Caithness Broch Project will unveil the minifigure scale LEGO Broch we built them at the Caithness Horizons Museum in Thurso. For those still unfamiliar with brochs, they are Iron Age drystone hollow-walled structures of a type found only in Scotland and mostly in northern Scotland. Building the LEGO Broch has been an exciting project which has taken us to some far flung corners of Scotland and pushed our LEGO building skills to their very limit. Once assembled at the museum the broch and it’s landscape will cover an area of 1.2 metres square and reach a height of around 40 cm.
As part of the project we also put together some instructions for a micro scale Broch, which were originally published on DigVentures’ website last year. In anticipation of the unveiling of the big Broch, we thought we’d share these instructions on our website for the first time. Go on, have a go! It’s made from exactly 100 pieces. You can get the parts list here.
