An introduction to the history of Kilfinan Parish, highlighting the west coast of the Parish from Ardlamont to Otter Ferry (Loch Fyne shore). In medieval times, this now tranquil shore was an important land base for the earliest Clan families: Lamonts, Campbells and MacEwens. The lives of the people who lived there were much affected by national events and politics through the centuries. The village of Kilfinan lies on the east side of Loch Fyne, north west of Tighnabruaich.
Kilfinan Church is the oldest church in the area and has a fascinating history as detailed in the Friends of Kilfinan Church website.
"For that is the mark of the Scot of all classes . . . there burns alive in him a sense of identity with the dead, even to the twentieth generation”
