The romantic ruins of Castle Moll rise on a rocky spur of land at Kyleakin, on the easternmost part of the Isle of Skye. Moll is supposedly named for a medieval Norwegian princess saddled with the sobriquet, 'Saucy Mary'. Apparently the princess stretched a chain across the strait that separates Skye and the Scottish mainland, and demanded at toll of anyone who wanted to sail through the strait. Moll is supposedly buried at nearby Beinn na Caillich, the Mountain of the Old Woman.
