Argyll’s Hidden Gem

Nested on the banks of the stunning Loch Awe in Argyll and Bute, Saint Conan’s Kirk is one the most popular things to do in Argyll, and has been providing the local community and visitors alike with a most enchanting experience. It is steeped in a family history, unconventional approaches to design and magical and almost unbelievable stories that surprise and delight those of every age.

Neither conventional nor slavishly representative of any particular type of architecture, it is larger than the actual needs of the congregation, and it is in parts elaborate. Nevertheless, no one who has visited it can deny that the founder’s vision of building “To the Glory of God, a House Beautiful” has indeed been realised.

Look around our website to discover more about the Kirk’s history and what the passionate and dedicated community who support it, offer throughout the year to help you make the most of your visit. Take away a part of its magic that will last well into the future. It is one of Argyll’s most popular tourist attractions and things to do, but there are days when you can have the whole Kirk to yourself.
