    The neat top storey at Mousa is a mid-19th century creation. In the late 1850s there wer5e fears that the broch was going to fall down, and the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland started a subscription so that repairs could be made. In 1861 a Shetland mason called Gifford Laurenson made major changes to the top of the building, which have stood the test of time.
