Slabs at Keills

Keills Chapel stands on a south-facing slope overlooking Loch Sween. The roof has recently been replaced to protect a collection of carved grave slabs.

This illustration shows two examples of graves stones found at Keills. The stone on the left is probably the older of the two as the carvings are fairly simple. The stone on the right has very elaborate and intricate carvings. The stone on the right depicts objects such as a comb and a clarsach.

This illustration was taken from 'Archaeological Sketches in Scotland: Knapdale and Gigha', by Captain T P White (1875)
