About the event

Meet at Dunollie where transport will be provided to Kilbride Kirkyard. Historic Kilbride has been a part of the MacDougall story for centuries. Here lie Clan Chiefs, Jacobite warriors, storied soldiers, sailors and men of the cloth. Here lie too, MacDougall women folk; dauntless Mary of Sleat, Hope MacDougall – whose efforts to conserve the Clan’s heritage are seen to this day at Dunollie and Jean MacDougall, whose collated work “Highland Postbag” brings MacDougall history to life.

Participants will be welcomed with a complimentary tea or coffee and a showing of a short film, “Kilbride: A past too rich to have no future”. Members of the Kilbride Team will also be on hand for any questions you may have.

About Kilbride Kirk: Located 3 miles South of Oban in Lerags, Kilbride Kirk has played an important part in Scotland’s history and is connected to figures such as Robert The Bruce, Alexander II and the Clan MacDougall. There are some 319 known graves at Kilbride, dating as far back as the 13th century to the present day. This important site is now cared for by the charity “Friends of Kilbride”, who have recently completed the renovation and preservation of the ruined Kirk and Session House. A warm welcome awaits!
