The broch at Dun Beag on Skye holds a commanding position looking out towards the Western Isles, near Bracadale. It is approximately 11 m in diameter. It is estimated that it originally stood to some 10 m. Although the broch probably dates to the first century AD, it appears to have continued into use up to the 18th century.

The broch is in the care of Historic Scotland.
