Eyre (Scottish Gaelic: Eighre) is a settlement on the eastern shore of Loch Snizort Beag on the northern coast of Skye in Scotland.[1]

The two Eyre standing stones (Scottish Gaelic: Sornaichean Coir' Fhinn) are situated next to Loch Eyre.[2] It is said that there was once a third stone here, although there is now no trace.[3]
