Funeral Procession near Kilkerran Churchyard

A large funeral procession near Kilkerran Churchyard on the shores of Campbeltown Loch. Most funerals were attended by all local residents, even children. The Argyll and Sutherland Volunteer Battalion can be seen at the head of the procession.

Kilkerran Churchyard takes its name from St. Ciaran, an Irish missionary who came to Kintyre during the 6th century. It is one of the oldest cemeteries in Scotland still in use. It is first recorded as being used as a cemetery in 605 A.D and has the reputation of being a royal burial ground due to various Kings of Dalriada being buried there
