St Conan’s Kirk, Loch Awe, Scotland – A Kirk With a View

DSC_0416

Follow up to the previous post on the interior, is the exterior of this enchanting Church, St Conan’s Kirk, built on the side of Loch Awe in Scotland.  The last photo is of the war memorial just before the church.  On the day we visited in May 2013, it was quite misty and the water on Loch Awe was so still, it was almost like a mirror.  It felt like you were in an time warp, as if you had entered a building that had been asleep for hundreds of years, but of course this building wasn’t finished until the 1930’s, but what an achievement to make a visitor think that.

  1. I have to wonder if this fellow had seen Rosslyn Chapel and wanted one for himself! The amount of detail is incredible. Thanks for all the great photos, Lynne, you must have been a little overwhelmed. 🙂

    1. I thought the same thing Pat about Rosslyn Chapel, I haven’t been there yet, but when I was at the Kirk, it felt to me like it would have the same feeling, even if it wasn’t exactly the same, the feeling might be. So I will have to visit Rosslyn and see 🙂 Glad you have enjoyed the photos, I really enjoyed taking them. There were quite a few people there, but I tried had to miss them, although a few were a bit stubborn and got into a few photos 🙂
