In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Howmore like this:

Howmore, a village and a registration district in the N of South Uist parish, Outer Hebrides, Inverness-shire. The village stands on the W coast of South Uist island, 7 miles S of the north-western extremity of that island, and 36 SSW of Lochmaddy, under which it has a post and telegraph office. The registration district is the central one of three districts into which South Uist parish is divided.
