Dunvegan Overview

The pretty village of Dunvegan lies on the east side of the head of Loch Dunvegan, which bites deeply into the Isle of Skye from the north west, turning the area known as Duirinish into a peninsula.

The views from the village are dominated by Healabhal Mhòr, the more northerly of two "Macleod's Tables" lying in the heart of the Duirinish peninsula. This is a flat-topped mountain, and it is said that when the clan chief particularly wanted to impress a visitor he held a banquet on the mountain top, surrounded by clansmen carrying torches. At a height of 469m, it must have been a chilly experience.
