This is the last post on Luss, Loch Lomond and of course its the church, the present church building was constructed in 1875, and was subject to major restoration works in 2001. The church site has had 1,500 years of continuous Christian presence, being originally founded by Saint Kessog, and has 15 listed ancient monuments on the site. Well I must have missed some, so when we return to visit some of the islands on the loch, a return visit to the graveyard is a must. It was a case of really not having enough time to explore, as we had a ferry to catch and still had a long way to travel.
Back to the church…… the interior has a magnificent hammer-beam roof in shape of an upturned boat. This may commemorate the drowning of Sir James Colquhoun and his men on the loch in 1873, when returning from a hunting party. The church was built by James, the son of Sir James, in honour of his father. In the east end of the Church is a medieval inspired statue of St Kessog dating from the late 13th or early 14th centuries when Roman Catholic worship was practised. The stone font is made from a solid block of sandstone and considered to be about 1000 years old.
