Dùn Liath stands on a low eminence above the cliffs to the east of Kilmuir in Skye's Trotternish peninsula. Now very much collapsed, there are still several courses of walling to the south of the dùn, and several places where the galleried nature of this fort is still evident. In addition to an intra-mural cell, there is also, unusually, an extra-mural cell outside the remains of the eastern rampart.

Access to Dùn Liath is from the Sgeir Lang Slipway, where you are faced with an immediate climb to the clifftop, and then by a path for about a kilometre west then southwest along the coastline.
