On the tiny island of Dùn Èistean you can see the remains of a defended settlement thought to have been built by the Clan Morrison who lived in Ness.

The clan would take refuge here during troubled times in Lewis around 500 years ago when clans fought each other, and the Scottish Crown, for political control. If you would like to know more about these troubled times, and the lives of the clans, there are interpretation boards telling the story by the footbridge over to Dùn Èistean. Access is via a rough track road from the village of Knockaird, Ness.
