Kilchrenan Church


Kilchrenan Church built in 1771. Believed to be erected on a site of an earlier 1200 medieval church.
The graveyard is well worth a visit. Some of the many gravestones date back to the 1300s and 1400s.
One vertical stone dating back to 1500 depicting a large sword is supposedly a memorial to Cailean Mor (Sir Colin Campbell) an ancestor of the Dukes of Argyll who was slain at the Battle of The String of Lorne in 1294.
