Kilmartin

These are the photographs that I got on a recent trip to the West coast of Scotland. Kilmartin is at the end of a remote, fertile flood plain, surrounded by uninhabited mountainous land for many miles. It is easy to see why the area has been chosen by many different peoples as a safe place to set up home. The grave stones in Kilmartin church are very special and date back to the 12th century. Some of them are very highly decorated. There are writers that claim connections to the Templars, though I saw nothing there that could be obviously called Templar. There is a definite Masonic influence to the later tombs on view and a compass and ruler motif on an early stone.

If anyone can give any more detailed info on any of the stones I would love to hear from you.
