Kilberry Sculptured Stones

  • Kilberry Castle, west coast of Knapdale



Take a close look at 26 sculptured stones  from the Campbell family mausoleum near the castle and around the Kilberry estate. 

The Kilberry Sculptured Stones cover a range of styles and eras – from early Christian grave-slabs to late-medieval cross fragments. They include the  medieval Kilberry Cross, a broken cross-shaft. 

Most of the stones were moved into the basement of Kilberry Castle in 1948, and placed in a purpose-built shelter in 1951. The cross joined them in 1997. 

The collection probably originates from the medieval parish church that stood near the Campbell of Kilberry mausoleum. It is first mentioned in the 1300s, and said to have been burnt down in the 1640s.
