Descriptive Gazetteer Entry for Ardmore

Ardmore, a headland in the W of Skye, Invernessshire, in the Vaternish section of Duirinish parish. A hostile party of the Macdonalds of Uist once landed here, while many of the Macleods of Skye were assembled in the adjacent church of Trumpan, and they suddenly surrounded the church, set fire to it, and destroyed nearly all who were in it; but, before they got back to their boats, a great number of them were slain by a body of avengers pouring down upon them at the call of ` the fiery cross.
