Note

Dun Beag, near Struan, is one of Skye's best-preserved brochs. The Countess Vincent Baillet de Latour excavated the Iron Age structure between 1914 and 1920. Interestingly, coins found at the site featuring Henry II, Edward I, James VI (and I), George II and George III suggest that the broch was occupied until the 18th century. Dun Beag is easily reached by bicycle from Portree. On a fine day, the 10-mile cycle is a lovely excursion, affording beautiful views of the Cuillins and Loch Bracadale. If you are not too tired from the cycle, the larger, though more ruinous, Dun Mor can be found about 500 yards north of Dun Beag. Bicycles can be hired from Island Cycles in Portree.
