Timsgarry (Scottish Gaelic: Tuimisgearraidh) is a village on the Isle of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Timsgarry is home to the Baile na Cille Church,[1] and is situated within the parish of Uig.[2] Timsgarry used to have its own chapel, named Capail Mor, further to the west of the present church, which was built in 1724 near to the site of an earlier church, known as Capail Beag.[2][3] The former manse is still present, with the churchyard.[2][4] Fragments of Iron Age pottery were recovered from Dun Borranish, just to the south of the main settlement, in 1991.[5] The Uig Museum is located at Timsgarry, within the community centre, and displays local archaeology, such as the Uig Chessmen.[6][7][8]
