BRACADALE (Norse: Place where townships meet)
Bracadale lies at the head of Loch Eynort. The settlement was established in the 1770s, one of its founders felt that the harbour was 'unspeakably secure' and described it as the 'Milford Haven' of the Western Isles. Bracadale was also famed for occurances of 'second sight' or psychic ability.
