Notes

It is shown on Blaeu's map as a settlement (not a church or chapel symbol) in the north-western peninsula of South Uist, roughly between Cill Amhlaidh (Kileulay) and Baile Gharbhaidh (Garraua). This locates it near to Aird Choinnich, and raises the possibility that Aird Choinnich and Kilchainie share a common element: the name of a saint.
