Slabs at Keills

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

The slab on the left contains several carved animals which is unusual in stones of this type as there are normally only up to three. The figures on the right hand slab appear only partially human. As well as the sword in the carving there is also a shield or targe.
