Dunain, Rubha an


(Rubh' an Dunain, Rubha an Dùnain)

A headland in the southwest of Skye (Highland Council Area), Rubha an Dunain (or Rubh' an Dunain) separates Loch Brittle from the Soay Sound, 8½ miles (14 km) west of Elgol. Rising to beyond 30m (98 feet), it is isolated from the remainder of the island by the Black Cuillin and the little Loch na h-Airde, with its Viking harbour. Also located here are a chambered cairn and a passage grave, both dating from Neolithic times, and an Iron-Age fort (or galleried dun).
