Argyll and Bute

A small settlement on the west coast of Islay, Argyll and Bute, Kilchoman (pronounced 'Kilhoman') consists of five buildings and a church. The church was built in 1825, closed in 1977 and is now in a state of disrepair. The adjacent sizeable cemetery is still in use by the local parish. In the grounds of the cemetery a splendid example of a Mediaeval cross (14th/15th C.) can be found. Kilchoman Military Cemetery is located a short distance to the southwest, created following the sinking of HMS Otranto in 1918. Kilchoman House (the former manse) is a fine two-storey Georgian structure, dating from 1826 and now B-listed. Several of the houses are now used as holiday cottages. Kilchoman Distillery is located to the east at Rockside.
