Roag (Scottish Gaelic: Ròdhag), meaning noisy place or 'deer bay' in Norse, is a small remote scattered hamlet on the north west shore of Pool Roag, and is in the west of the Duirinish peninsula, on the Isle of Skye, Scottish Highlands and is in the Scottish council area of Highland.

The villages of Heribost approximately 0.5 miles northeast, Orbost lying less than 0.5 miles south east of Roag, and Ardraog lying closer to the shore are considered part of Roag. Harlosh lies on the other side of Loch Vatten.

Roag also overlooks the sea lochs Loch Na Faolinn and Loch Bracadale.
