Ardchattan Priory

In the parish of Ardchattan, on the north shore of Loch Etive, stands the beautiful ruin of historic St. Modan's Priory, founded in the 13th century for Valliscaulian monks by the chief of Clan MacDougall.

It is said that Robert Bruce held the last parliament in which the Gaelic language was used here and that the arrows for his army were made from the yew trees there. Visit the atmospheric graveyard and tour the tranquil ancient gardens overlooking the loch, which has been largely developed over the last 110 years by the property's current owners.
