(Gaelic Dun-bheagan) is a small village on the west coast of
the Island of Skye, near the head of Loch Dunvegan. To the north
is Dunvegan Castle, ancient stronghold of the Macleods of Skye.
Home of the chiefs of Macleod for more than 800 years, its 14th-century
keep and 16th century Fairy Tower were connected
in the 17th by Rory Mor (Roderick Macleod). The castle was given
its present crenellated profile in 1790 and 1811—14, with
further additions in 1840—50. It is open to the public
and has many objects on display including the Fairy Flag, a
Saracen flag captured on a crusade, and items connected with
Prince Charles Edward Stewart.
