Kilmartin

Kilmartin is an area brimming with historic wonders. Amid the stunning scenery, you’ll find endless opportunities to delve deeper into Scotland’s past. This beautiful glen in mid Argyll is one of Scotland’s richest and most important prehistoric landscapes. Within six miles of Kilmartin village there are over 350 ancient monuments, including cairns, standing stones and stones circles. The Iron Age Dunadd Fort, where Fergus, King of Dalriada, established his royal seat, is an enthralling place to visit.

Kilmartin offers some wonderful walking. And with so many fascinating sites concentrated in such a small area, Kilmartin Glen is easily explored on foot.

Watch out for wildlife when you’re out and about. This wild and sparsely populated region is a haven for all sorts of animals and birds, including red squirrels, pine martens and birds of prey.
