Kilmodan Stones

[Kilmodan Stones]

The Kilmodan Stones are found inside the churchyard of St Modan's Church in Clachan of Glendaruel, a remote valley settlement miles from anywhere of significant size and reached by a choice of wide, sweeping and scenic roads. Ten carved grave slabs are on display, incorporating intricate lacing, human figures, deer and even a couple of unicorns. All but one of the stones date from late-medieval times, with the other one commemorating a 17th century minister of the church. St Modan's is itself worth looking inside - probably always open to passers-by.
