Am Fang Dubh / The Black Cattle Pen (photographed in 2004)

The name suggests that this stony bay surrounded by high cliffs on the southern shore of Kennavara could have been used as a natural pen for holding livestock. There are the ruined foundations of a small stone hut in the middle, which was used by fishermen in the summer months.
