Beli son of Elfin (Welsh: Beli ap Elfin; Irish: Bile mac Eilphin; died c. AD 720), now better known as Beli II of Alt Clut, was a king of Alt Clut (Dumbarton Rock) for some period in the early 8th century.

According to the Harleian genealogies, he was the son of Elfin, one of his predecessors as king. The same genealogy makes him father to Teudebur,[1] his probable successor on the throne.

His obituary is noted in the Chronicle of the Princes and the Annals of Ulster[2] under the year 722.
