Kilmartin Glen: Kilmartin Stones

  • Kilmartin Churchyard, Kilmartin, Argyll


Trace the story of Kilmartin Glen through a collection of sculptured stones, carved over a 700-year period.

Kilmartin’s church and graveyard are home to over 23 fine sculptured stones, ranging in date from the 900s to the 1600s. Together, they’re testament to the long history of Kilmartin Glen.

Together with the sub-circular form of the church graveyard, the stones hint at a much longer history of religious activity at Kilmartin. The collection is possibly connected to the nearby medieval power centre at Dunadd Fort.

Opening times

Open year-round. The stone crosses within the church are not accessible.
