Macleod's Tables


A distinctive pair of hills on the Duirinish Peninsula in the far west of the Isle of Skye. Macleod's Tables comprise Macleod's Table South (Healabhal Bheag) reaching 489m (1605 feet) and Macleod's Table North (Healabhal Mhor) which rises to 469m (1538 feet). Although not high, these hills are distinctive because of their steep sides, yet perfectly flat tops and represent the remains of lava flows from the tertiary volcanoes which once erupted to form much of Skye. Steeped in folklore, the hills were said to have been used by Macleod of Dunvegan to serve a grand feast to visitors.
