Church Overview

The Cathedral Church of Saint Moluag was built in the 14th century and attributed locally, by tradition, to ‘The Roman’ or ‘An Roimhanach’. Six stained glass windows, two modern by Mitton. Eight medieval carved slab-stones, said to be of the ‘Loch Awe’ school and recumbent carved stone within the building. Traditional baptismal font is carved in a natural rock surface in the graveyard.
