The Kirk is located on the shore of Loch Awe in the village of Lochawe on the A85 between Tyndrum and Oban. The Kirk is open to visitors every day throughout the year, except when closed for special events (please check the Events calender).

There is some parking in laybys on either side of the main road by the Kirk. Some additional parking may be found towards St Conan’s Road.

Admission Fee

We are working on other languages. We ask that you return the leaflet to the cloister at the end of your visit.
