Visit to Kilmartin Museum Thursday 23rd May 2024

Kilmartin museum re-opened last summer after a major £7m refurbishment and expansion.  Kilmartin Glen, a little to the north of Lochgilphead, boasts over 800 prehistoric monuments, including standing stones, rock carvings and cairns.  Special loans from the National Museums of Scotland and the British Museum enrich one of the most comprehensive displays of ancient artefacts in the UK.

  • leave from the coach bays at the Helensburgh Leisure Centre at 9.30 am

  • return there by about 5.30 pm. 

The journey will take about two and a half hours, including a short coffee and comfort stop en route.

You will have at least an hour to explore the collection, which is very well displayed and explained.  We will have a soup and sandwich lunch with coffee/tea and shortbread in the museum cafe at 1.30.  There will then be a further hour to look at the exhibits in more detail or you could walk down to the cairn just outside.  (Walking shoes are essential, as the path down includes many steps, some rough ground and a stile.)
