The island lies just east of Inchcailloch, is approximately 1 km SW of Balmaha, and measures 450m NE to SW by 200m at its widest point.[4] The island is flat: just 13 m at its highest point.[5] (The word clàr refers to a flat surface, such as a board or table.)[6] From above, the outline of the island bears a remarkable resemblance to a fish.[7]
