Neave Island (also Coomb Island) is an island on the north coast of the Scottish mainland.
Neave Island is a small rugged island to the east of Eilean nan Ròn in Sutherland, separated from the mainland by a narrow channel, Caol Beag. It is just over half a mile from the settlement of Skerray and is known for its sandy beach on the far eastern end of the island. There are remains of an ancient church, identified as St. Coloumba's Church on an 1874 map of the island.
