Overview

Not 10 minutes out of Dunoon lies Historic Kilmun, with its Mausoleum sheltering 500 years of Campbell Chiefs. From St Fintan Munnu in the 6th century to the working church of today, there has been worship here for over 1400 years. See our newly opened Visitor Centre, the beautiful Princess Louise Sculpture, and take a tour with our guides to learn of remarkable lives that shaped Scottish history.
