Tarner Island is a triangular shaped island in Loch Bracadale just off the coast off the Harlosh peninsula of Skye in Inverness-shire.[1][2] It is about 69 acres in extent. The coastline is largely cliff-lined and rocky and there is a natural arch to the north. Tarner Island is only about ⅔ mile from mainland Skye and there are several skerries including Sgeir Mhòr and Sgeir Bheag that lies just offshore to the north east between the island and Colbost Head.[1] Wiay and the tidal islet of Oronsay lie about a mile to the south.
