Duirinish is a peninsula on the island of Skye in Scotland. It is situated in the north west between Loch Dunvegan and Loch Bracadale.

The main peaks on Duirinish are Healabhal Mhòr and Healabhal Bheag, which reach 469 metres (1,539 ft) 488 metres (1,601 ft) respectively and are better known as MacLeod's Tables.

They lie in the centre of the Duirinish peninsula and their distinctive shapes are visible throughout much of north west Skye. Dunvegan Head marks the north end of the peninsula and Idrigill Point the south.
