Sunday 28 June - St. Conan's Kirk
After Lomond, we were happily traveling beside Loch Awe heading towards Oban when we noticed this rather remarkable church built on the steep slope of the loch. Then we noticed that it was St. Conan's Kirk so a stop was obligatory. On a closer look, it was even more astonishing but its uniqueness is very well described in both words and pictures here at Undiscovered Scotland. To add to their pictures here are three of ours - a celtic cross memorial to Mrs Campbell senior, an "old man's beard" clematis growing on the kirk's gatehouse; and one of the six identical chairs in the semi-circle behind the altar table (for elders?). All our photos are also published in Picasa.
