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 as various Kings of Dalriata were buried there
