List of Sites
This stone stands beside a well surrounded by ruins of the former township of Kilmory. The west face is carved with a cross with double transom, 2 pairs of birds, 2 discs and at least 4 animals. Carvings on the east face, which are contemporary, depict a simple outline cross.
This simple stone with carvings on both sides (the one seen here is the E face) is positioned just beside a (holy?) well. One of the ruins of the later settlement of Kilmory Oib can be seen in the distance. We cannot be certain about the meaning of the name 'Kilmory'. Depending on the stress pattern of the original pronunciation, it could mean 'Church of Mary' or 'Church of Saint Maelrubha'.
This site is easily accessed by a forest walk leading off from the Tayvallich-Crinan road.
