Borniskittag  Inverness Shire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Borniskittag like this:

Borniskittag, a headland and a hamlet in Kilmuir parish, Isle of Skye, Inverness-shire, in the western vicinity of Kilmuir manse. The headland, for nearly 1 mile on its northern face, exhibits basaltic colonnades in picturesque combinations of form; and, near its extremity, is pierced with three caves, one of which presents a somewhat miniature resemblance to Fingal's Cave in Staffa.
