Overview

Admire nearly 40 carved stones, dating from early Christian to late-medieval times, within a simple, modest Argyllshire church. 

Keills Chapel was built in the 1100s and was dedicated to St Cormac. It contains almost 40 carved stones, which range in dates from the AD 700s  to the 1500s.  

Most significant among the chapel’s collection is the Keills Cross, a free-standing high cross dating to the 700s. It’s an excellent example of fine stone craftsmanship and is very similar to crosses found on Iona. It is the only example of its type on the mainland.
