Dunscaith  Inverness Shire


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

Dunscaith, a ruined baronial fortalice on the W coast of Sleat parish, Isle of Skye, Inverness-shire. It belonged to the Barons of Sleat, and seems, from remains of a prison and of a draw-well, to have been a place of considerable strength.
