A significant island in the Sound of Harris, Killegray (Gael: Ceileagraigh) lies to the south of Ensay 3 miles (5 km) southwest of Leverburgh on Harris. The island rises to 45m (148 feet) and extends to 176 ha (435 acres). It supported a small permanent population until just before the Second World War. The 19th-century Killegray House was renovated as holiday accommodation in the early 1990s. A jetty lies on the northeast coast opposite Killegray House and the remains of an ancient chapel and graveyard lie on the coast to the north.
