Looking south west from Dun Nosebridge.

Dun Nosebridge is an Iron Age fort southeast of Bridgend, Islay, Scotland. The fort is located on the right bank of the River Laggan.[1]

The name's origin is probably a mixture of Scottish Gaelic and Old Norse: Dun in the former language means "fort" and knaus-borg in the latter means "fort on the crag". Another possibility is the Norse hnaus-bog meaning "turf fort".[2]
