Kennavara (Ceann a' Mhara in Gaelic) forms a headland and ridge between Balephuil and Sandaig on the southwest corner of Tiree. On top of the hill are a number of dun forts. This area is the most rugged part of the island.

The cliffs of Kennavara are an important nesting area for seabirds and are reckoned to be dangerous - a local Tiree saying suggests you shouldn't venture onto Kennavara alone. This may be common sense advice or it may have roots in the legends of supernatural beings which inhabit the caves!
