Kilmartin Church, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, UK

Kilmartin church, on a gravel terrace on Kilmartin Valley's east side, overlooks several prehistoric monuments. It was built in 1834-5 to replace a church of 1798 and an even earlier one from 1601. There is a record of a church here as early as 1323 and a vicar of Kilmartin is mentioned as early as 1304. The church and grounds contain a fine collection of Medieval graveslabs.
The modern church and the ancient graveyard dominate the raised terrace on which the village of Kilmartin has developed. The Bronze age Glebe cairn is visible above and to the left of the church. Kilmartin House museum is the white former manse building behind the church.
