Kilmartin Church And Graveyard
Kilmartin, Argyll
Mediaeval Grave Slabs; Early Christian Crosses; Carved Slabs; Church Canmore
Also known as Kilmartin Lapidarium; Poltalloch Stones

A couple of beautifully decorated early Christian crosses used to stand outside the parish church in Kilmartin. These have now been moved into the church for their protection. There is ready access to the church interior and these stones are well worth a look.

The burying ground around the church contains many mediaeval grave slabs. Other mediaeval grave slabs that used to be at St Columba's Chapel in Poltalloch have also been moved to Kilmartin. Many of these are protected in a covered mausoleum in the grounds of Kilmartin churchyard, others are displayed outdoors.
