Trumpan, Isle Of Skye, Scotland



We visited the ruins of Trumpan Church while on holiday on the Isle of Skye, Scotland in July 2004 and June 2009.  This is an outstandingly beautiful place to visit, as is the whole of Skye and must surely be the most beautiful churchyard we have been to.  Not only does its coastline setting add to the drama but the gravestones are kept clean and the grass kept short and neat.  A most pleasing place to contemplate eternity.

Trumpan is now a place of peace and beauty, making it hard to associate it with the violence of its past.  Please read the story of the battle, now known as The Spoiling of the Dyke, in the Notice in the photograph below.
