(Roineabhal, Mount Roineabhal)

A significant mountain which represents the third-highest point on South Harris in the Outer Hebrides. Rising to a height of 460m (1509 feet), Roneval (Gael: Roineabhal, occasionally Mount Roineabhal) lies 2 miles (3 km) east of Leverburgh and a similar distance west northwest of Lingarabay. Roneval was the focus of a long-running planning application and public inquiry, finally concluded in 2004, which would have seen the 600 million tons of the anorthosite rock that forms the mountain quarried and exported for road aggregate and concrete-production.
