Skipness Monumental Inscriptions
From Kilbrannan Chapel
(also know as St. Brendan's and Skipness Chapel)

St. Brendan's chapel is of late 13th or early 14 century date, built down by the shore to replace the earlier 12 century chapel whose walls were incoporated into the extension of Skipness Castle from a hall house with separate chapel into a castle of enceinte. The burial ground, which is still in use, contains marker stones, late mediaeval grave slabs (three under protective covers) and many 18th and early 19th century stones, a number with the symbols of mortality, some with the symbols of the deceased's trade. Map ref. NR910575
