Lovely Kirk that we stopped to look in during a Robbie's tour around the west highland lochs. I was impressed by the Robert the Bruce statue and the beautiful scenery.

We passed this delightful little kirk on our way from Glasgow to Oban. Although pretty enough from the road side, it is the unique interior that makes it worth a stop. Despite looking much older, it is less than 100 years old but has a very interesting history; it was built by a local laird so his mother didn't have... More

This very interesting church was built by a local laird, so that his Mother did not have to travel far to go to services. I do not know of another like it.

Touring around on a Sunday afternoon, came across this little Kirk, had a small Tearoom at the side. Before we popped in for a coffee, had a look around this old Kirk and found the history interesting. Queen Victoria bust facing the alter and two stain glass windows in memory of her daughter who was married to the Duke of... More

When we visited on a lovely day in October there were very few visitors to what is a fantastic building of many different styles. The kirk is in need of restoration but that should not put you off. The chapel dedicated to Robert the Bruce is worth a visit on its own. Apart from the hum of passing traffic the... More

St Conan's Kirk sits on the banks of Loch Awe. From the roadside it appears as any other Old Scottish Church. I parked on the roadside easy enough. Walked down a gravel pathway towards the furthest away entrance which led into a cloisters area. A walk around the side of the building leads to a spectacularly breathtaking view of Loch... More

Nested on the banks of the stunning Loch Awe, Saint Conan’s Kirk is a must see. One of the most amazing features of Saint Conan Kirk is the Bruce Chapel. Having a commanding position and larger-than-life is an effigy of King Robert Bruce, with the hands and face made of alabaster and the remainder carved from wood.

I had read about this church in the Campbeltown Courier and decided that it might make a scenic detour on our way from Helensburgh to Campbeltown. It was indeed a lovely car run. First along Loch Lomond, which ends at Ardlui, then through Glen Falloch, before turning left at Crianlarich and on to Loch Awe. I can't remember whether we... More
