SourcesThis name was gathered as part of a local research project on the place-names of the Rough Bounds of Lochaber and was published in a booklet by SNH and AÀA. The Following quote appears in that booklet:

“Next we come to Rubha or Rhu Point which takes in quite a panorama from the entrance of Loch nan Uamh, round to Ceann an Tràigh, the South Minch and north to Skye and Knoydart.”
