Notes

There are fine remains of a promontory fort on this coastal feature. It is possible that the name of the point (Gaelic rubha) derives from the name of a burial-ground, Cladh Eoin (John's burial ground), which was created on the site of the fort, though there is no unambiguous evidence of such a burial ground. NMRS, Canmore ID: 39077. OS 6 inch 1st edn. shows 'burial ground (site of)' within the fort.
