Kilmory Oib Village
Lochgilphead, Argyll
Deserted Mediæval Village Canmore
Also known as Loch Coille-Bharr
This hamlet, not far from the Kilmartin Valley, was abandoned sometime during the mediæval period. A holy well/spring in the centre of the village is decorated with crosses on both sides. The west face also has carvings of two discs, perhaps the sun and moon, two birds, and animals in a damaged area at the top.
