Dun Borrafiach is an Iron Age broch located on the north coast of the island of Skye, in Scotland .
Dun Borrafiach is located on the Waternish peninsula of Skye, about 8 kilometres northwest of the village of Lusta. It occupies a rocky outcrop overlooking the Borrafiach Burn.
Dun Borrafiach has an external diameter of 16.5 metres, and the walls still stand to a height of 2.7 metres on the south side. The entrance is on the northwest side of the broch. The northeast side of the entrance-way appears to have been narrowed in antiquity by the insertion of additional walling. Inside the broch, a long stretch of the outer face of the intramural gallery is still visible on the east side.
