    Poltalloch Estate,

    We were on
    a walk in Slockavullin, near Kilmartin, and my ex, Colin, showed me the former home of the Malcolms. They live in a castle elsewhere on the estate, and used to own this place, on top of the hill overlooking Crinan, back in the 1800's. I can't remember why it's a ruin, they stopped using it and I believe removed the roof of it. But it's beautiful and right next to the church that is on the estate.

    loved this website ,you feel the love n passion gone into it. With over 5000 years of human history can be traced across the Kilmartin valley. At least 350 ancient monuments, of which 150 are prehistoric, lie within six miles of the quiet village of Kilmartin. Of particular interest are the earlier prehistoric monuments: chambered cairns, round cairns, cists, standing stones and rock carvings.

    When visiting Kilmartin Glen, it is best to start at the Kilmartin House Museum of Ancient Culture. This is located in the old manse in Kilmartin village and admission includes an atmospheric audio visual presentation as well as entry to the museum itself which includes a model of the glen. There is also an excellent cafe here
