Fodor's See It Scotland, 4th Edition
Kilmartin House Museum
Kilmartin House Museum Review
For an exceptional encounter with early Scottish history, start at this museum 8 miles north of Crinan and then explore some of the more than 300 ancient monuments within a 6-mile radius. Exhibits provide information about the stone circles and avenues, burial mounds, and carved stones dating from the Bronze Age and earlier that are scattered nearby. There is also a nice tea room in the museum. Nearby Dunadd Fort, a rocky hump rising out of the level ground between Crinan and Kilmartin, was once the capital of the early kingdom of Dalriada, founded by the first wave of Scots who migrated from Ireland around AD 500. Clamber up the rock to see a basin, a footprint, and an outline of a boar carved on the smooth upper face of the knoll.
