This site is located in the north western part of South Uist. Early maps showing forms in Kilchainie, Kilyanen indicate the likelihood of a church dedicated to St Cainnech having existed here at some point. However, only Àird Choinnich survives and is described by the OS Name Books as ‘a small district of cultivated land between Loch Bee and the public Road’ [simple_tooltip content='OS Name Books, Inverness-shire Ordnance Survey Name Books, 1876-1878.
