The Celtic Cross and Parish Church
In the centre of Inveraray is The Celtic Cross. Dating back to the 14th century, the cross is a delightful piece of our history. As you study its intricate construction and design, you will notice the Parish Church just across the way. Built between 1792 and 1802, the church’s neoclassical style is breath-taking. Inside, you will discover that one half of the church was devoted to those who spoke Gaelic, whilst the other side was devoted to English-speaking worshippers. The decline in use of Gaelic resulted in the church being turned into a church hall in 1957.
Inveraray Bell Tower
Erected as a memorial to those lost from the Campbell Clan after WWI, the Inveraray Bell Tower features a ring of ten bells, each named after a Celtic saint. Although you won’t be able to tour the inside of the tower during the fall and winter months, there is much to appreciate by examining the craftsmanship of the exterior. This month, there are two opportunities to hear the beautiful bells: on October 22nd from 11 am to 5pm, and on October 29th from 10:30am to noon.
