Kilmartin Glen


(Strath of Kilmartin)

A fertile valley at the extreme south of the Nether Lorn district of Argyll and Bute, Kilmartin Glen (or the Strath of Kilmartin) is best known for its rich archaeological heritage, which comprises standing stones, stone circles, a line of large burial mounds and cup-and-ring marks, dating from the Neolithic and the Bronze Age. Interpretation is provided at various points, including the Kilmartin House Museum. Extending to 4½ miles (7 km), the valley contains the Kilmartin Burn which flows south to join the River Add on the flat expanse of the Moine Mhor. The settlements of Kilmartin and Slockavullin lie within the glen.
