Trumpan Church is a ruined building in the hamlet of Trumpan on the Vaternish peninsula in the north of the Isle of Skye.
The church was the scene of a brutal murder in 1578 when the MacDonald clan of Uist burnt down the building including all but one of the church-goers inside. This led to the MacLeod clan taking revenge by killing the invading MacDonalds before they fled Skye, known as the Battle of the Spoiling Dyke.
The tiny ruined church now stands alone overlooking the sea.
Parking and picnic benches.
