Clickimin broch is a large, coastal broch in Lerwick, Shetland. On the inland side of the passage to the broch there is one of the very rare "footprint stones" (otherwise called "devil's footprint") indicating where the safe passage-way starts (a similar footprint stone is for example found near the old ford to Eilean Donan castle, which is now linked by a modern bridge). The entrance to the broch itself is blocked by a separate fort. The site is maintained by Historic Scotland.

Situated across the loch is the Clickimin Leisure Centre.
