(Bunavoneader, Bunavoneddar, Bun Abhainn Eadarra)
Western Isles

A small settlement of North Harris in the Outer Hebrides, Bunaveneadar (also Bunavoneader or Bunavoneddar, Gael: Bun Abhainn Eadarra) lies at the mouth of the Eadar River (Abhainn Eadarra) where it enters Loch Bun Abhainn-eadar, an inlet within West Loch Tarbert, 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Tarbert. Located on the edge of the loch are the prominent remains of a whaling station which was operated by a Norwegian company between 1903-27 and briefly reused in the early 1950s. This represents the only substantial remnant of a whaling station anywhere in Scotland and the tall brick-built chimney is now B-listed owing to its historical importance.
