Seeming to rise out of the inky depths of Loch Awe, at first glance St Conan’s Kirk looks like something out of a medieval fairy tale. But a closer look reveals that the church is actually a melange of architectural styles, a mishmash of Roman, Norman, Renaissance and modern.
And just who would come up with such a curious idea? Well, it was another thing for which Argyll was renowned- eccentric Victorians with a vision and money to burn. Visit this fascinating piece of architecture and history, and drop in the small cafe and gift shop.
