The highest point on Nave Island is 34 metres (112 ft) above sea level.
As its name implies, the island has an ecclesiastical connection, probably dating back to the time of the Culdees. In 1549, Dean Monro wrote: "on the north coist of Ila, beside the entresse of Lochgrunord, layes ane iyle, called by the Erish Ellan-nese, with ane kirke in it. This iyle is half ane myle in lenthe, fair maynland, inhabit and manurit, guid for fishing." Johan Blaeu's Atlas of 1654 refers to the island as "Ylen Naomh".
