Caibeal Dhiarmaid

Caibeal Dhiarmaid refers to one of the structures found at Howmore. The church may originally have been known as Teampull Chaluim Chille which would account for [simple_tooltip content='Martin, M. 1703. A Description of the Western Islands of Scotland (London).']Martin’s (1703, 88)[/simple_tooltip] statement that ‘The Churches here [in South Uist] are St. Columba and St. Mary’s in Hogh-more’. This is one of the structures at Howmore which may originally have been built before the thirteenth century.
