- Cairn na Burgh Beag is the smaller of the two “Carnburgs” at the northeastern end of the Treshnish Isles, with the other beingCairn na Burgh Mòr. Cairnburgh Castle, which guards the entrance to Loch Tuath on the west coast of Mull is primarily located on the larger of the pair. However, an unusual feature of the castle its that its defences straddle both islands, Cairn na Burgh Beag having a small guard-house and a well. These grassy islands are both remnants of ancient lava flows and have a distinctive profile: flat-topped and trimmed with cliffs.
