Schalun Castle, also known colloquially as Wildschloss, was constructed probably during the second half of the 12th century or around the turn of the 12th century. The first written record about the castle comes from 1237. In it, it was also first referred to by name, as 'Schalun'. Archeological digs made in recent decades have revealed only small amounts of artefacts from the medieval and early modern period, suggesting that the castle might have been cleared and burned down at a later point in its history. In the 18th century, the castle came into the possession of the then Prince Regnant of Liechtenstein. The ownership of the castle ruin was handed over to the Municipality of Vaduz in 1933. Today, the best preserved parts of the castle are its grand hall and the remaining section of its keep.References:
The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.
The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
