Isle of Skye. Dunscaith gets its name from Sgathae, a legendary Queen in the days of Fingal. The ruins lie on the west coast of Sleat, the most southern peninsula on the Isle of Skye. The castle stands on a rock about 40 feet high, some 20 feet from the mainland. There was once a walled bridge connecting the castle to the mainland.

The ruins are located near the small village of Duntulm. The Duntulm castle was built in the 14th and 15th centuries and was the subject of feuds between McLeods and McDonalds. The latest fairly took control during the 17th century. It was abandoned in 1732 and its stones used as building material for a new residence.
10. Uig Bay. In the northeast of the Isle of Skye is the small port town of Uig in a circular bay. With just 200 inhabitants, the area is quite small. There is a supermarket, a gas station, a post office, and a hotel. Nothing spectacular, but just the sight of the Uig Bay puts the port town on this list.
