Really enjoyed reading about the Trinity Temple and wandering through the ruins. Nice walk to the ruins through sheep paddock.

Well worth a visit. Excellent brochure available throughout island and in most accommodation which gives brief background. There is a short walk involved which crosses a final unpathed stretch which may cause problems for some particularly after wet weather.

You need to do your research before you go to really appreciate this one. Small signs near the parking area indicate the site of the Blar Charanais (Battle of Carinish) in 1601 - fought as part of a feud between the MacDonalds of Sleat and MacLeods during the early 1600s. Not a lot to see now, but the landscape still... More

I'd read up on the history of this place prior to visit which made my visit extremely enjoyable! It helped that the weather was beautiful too.

It's an old ruin. You have to do your homework to understand what you're looking at. This is one of the places where Duns Scotus and other ecclesiastical scholars kept the light of knowledge and culture alive while England was stumbling through the Dark Ages.So much for backward Gaels!!

I visited this site on a recent Hebridean tour. It sits just a short walk off the main road through North Uists. The first thing that meets you are the signs showing the Ditch of Blood from the battle in 1601. The temple itself is ruins which stand with a good view of the coast. Interesting place to visit and... More

The Trinity Temple is walk from the parking area through a sheep pasture. The ruins are set overlooking the water, and I spent a pleasant 20 minutes or so wandering around the graveyard and building ruins. Very interesting to read about the history and be able to appreciate the site.

Of interest to history buffs and those who love the Islands. Not many interpretation boards so a guidebook is useful but even then there isn't much material. Close to some good local B&Bs. A scenic setting for dramatic photography in the right weather.

When visiting Uist try to visit as many of these sites as you can. There may be great buildings in many cities but these have a lot more to say about our ancestors.
