Where and Tips

Scotland, Glenbrittle
United Kingdom

Rubh' an Dunain is a peninsula on the Isle of Skye near the Glenbrittle village. It is easily accessible via good track. The peninsula itself can be very boggy (good walking boots are essential). On the edge of the peninsula lies a little loch and historic settlement. There is a tomb and a ruin of a Dun. This tomb was built by Vikings, who also built a ship canal from the loch to the sea. It was built probably 2nd or 3rd millennium BC.

You can see the Isle of Rum from the place, Loch Brittle and southern part of the Cuillin ridge. You will see a lot of sheep on your way to the peninsula.
