(An Cnoc Ard)
Western Isles

One of several closely associated crofting townships in the Ness district at the northern tip of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, the settlement of Knockaird (Gael: An Cnoc Ard) is located immediately to the southeast of Fivepenny, a mile (1.5 km) south of the Butt of Lewis. The former stronghold of the Morrisons of Ness on the islet of Dun Eistean lies a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the north.
