Cairnburgh Castle
Cairnburgh Castle
The ruins on the left are the remains of Cairnburgh Castle, which was highly unusual in being split between two neighbouring tiny islands, Cairn na Burgh Mr seen here and the adjacent Cairn na Burgh Beag. Little remains on the smaller island however. The ruins on the right are of a chapel of similar date (C15/16th).
Cairn na Burgh More (Mr) & Beg (Beag)

The two Cairn na Burgh islands along with their associated rocks and skerries are the northeasternmost islands of the Treshnish archipelago which guard the entrance to Loch Tuath on the western side of the Isle of Mull.
Cairn na Burgh More (Mr) has an area of c.3⅓ acres (1.36ha) with a highest elevation of 35m.
Cairn na Burgh Beg (Beag) has an area of c.3 acres (1.2 ha) with a high point of 22m
Neither island is populated these days.
