A narrow strait in Scotland through which an army of Saxon invaders fled after they were defeated by Arthur’s army, led by Lancelot. The Saxon warrior Hegadabrant (Hargodabrans) was captured at this battle.

Lancelot wished to pursue the Saxons through the narrows, but he was held back by his cousin Lionel, who warned him that he would be killed.
