Kilmartin Museum


Kilmartin, Lochgilphead, Argyll, PA31 8RQ

    Welcome to Kilmartin Museum your starting point to discover the fascinating prehistoric landscape of Kilmartin Glen.

    Kilmartin Glen, in the heart of Mid Argyll, is one of Scotland's richest prehistoric landscapes. Over 800 historic monuments, cairns, standing stones, stone circles and rock art dating back over 5000 years have been recorded within this area.

    Kilmartin Museum collects and cares for all of the archaeological objects that are found, by chance or excavation in Mid Argyll. Visitors and locals alike are able to enjoy these artefacts in the Museum gallery and they are able to step outside into the landscape to enjoy the sites and monuments where they were found. The Museum continues to carry out archaeological surveys and its excavations are continually uncovering new and exciting artefacts.

    Also on site is our award winning cafe and gift and book shop stocked with jewellery, art, cards and craftwork from local artisans. Our bookshop provides a range of fiction and reference books, of which many have a local or Scottish theme.
