Ancient History and Archaeology, explore ancient monuments, castles and hill forts.

People have lived in this part of Argyll for over 6000 years. The area is dotted with many prehistoric sites including burial cairns, rock carvings, standing stones and stone circles.

Within our grounds we have an ancient ruined farmstead, of which records can be traced back to the middle ages, and a chambered cairn you can explore. Nearby tracks take you to ruins at Oib and Arichonan.

Heading down the Achnamara peninsula and Loch Sween we have Castle Sween and Kilmory Knap Chapel.

Kilmartin Glen is steeped in history with castles and hill forts such as Carnasserie and Dunadd. Kilmartin Museum and its cafe is a mine of local information and a must visit!

A bit further afield is the Auchindrain Township and museum of rural life - Auchindrain Township.

Full details are in the information pack in the house.
