Welcome to Kilmartin Museum your starting point to discover the fascinating prehistoric landscape of Kilmartin Glen. Kilmartin Museum is temporarily closed until 2023 while we build exciting new facilities and visitor experiences. Our Café will open from May 2021 with plenty of delicious food and drink. Please see our website for cafe opening times and to find out more about our future, Kilmartin Glen, and our ongoing Events and Services.
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 is undergoing an exciting redevelopment project during 2021 and 2022, so the museum gallery and visitor facilities are currently closed to visitors until 2023. Coffees, cakes and light lunches are available from a takeaway café with outdoor seating on the museum site (next door to Kilmartin Church) operated by Lucy’s of Ardfern from May 2021. Learn how people have shaped the environment you see today with hundreds of prehistoric sites, standing stones and burial cairns in our walking guide ‘In The Footsteps Of Kings’, available to purchase from the café, before heading out into the landscape yourself. Please follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code (https://www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot/) and help keep Kilmartin Glen beautiful for all who live, work and visit here.
Weekly volunteer-led guided walks through Kilmartin Glen will restart as soon as restrictions allow. For further information and latest updates, please check our website www.kilmartin.org.
The café will have vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options, using local produce where possible.
Dogs are welcome.
