The ruins of Teampull na Trionaid

Teampull na Trionaid ("trinity church") is a ruined 13th-century church and seminary at Carinish, North Uist, Scotland. Amie mac Ruari is said to have rebuilt the church in the 14th century after her divorce from John of Islay, Lord of the Isles.[1] The ruins are protected as a scheduled monument.[2]

The Battle of Carinish was fought near the church in 1601.
