Kilberry Sculptured Stones
Kilberry Sculptured Stones
Under a modern shelter at Kilberry, on the west coast of Knapdale, are a collection of grave slabs and carved crosses gathered over the years from various places around the Kilberry estate. Most were carved from locally quarried stones and were used at a burial ground near the castle.
The carved stones were taken from the burial ground to be used as building stone during the 18th century. They have now been rescued at placed under the shelter to protect them from the ravages of weathering. Many of the stones are of a type typical of medieval grave slabs in the West Highlands, but others are of a style unique to this area.

The collection is generally similar in style to carved stone collections at Kilmory Knap and Kilmartin. The stones here are perhaps not as well-preserved as the other two sites, but are still quite fascinating - of particular note is an amusing carving in the shape of a rooster. The stones are accessible at any time.
