Oitir Mhic Dhomhnaill Ghlais, Carinish

Oitir Mhic Dhòmhnaill Ghlais is the sandbank over which  the son of Donald Glas MacLeod and a handful of companions fled towards Baleshare following defeat at the Battle of Carinish. Despite having offered surrender to the victorious MacDonalds, all the MacLeods were slain. According to Beveridge's North Uist,  mac Dhòmhnaill Ghlais received:

a sword cut which cleft his skull above the right ear. He was buried in Carinish 'Temple' ... but the others rest where they fell ...
