Further Investigation of
the Inveryne Stone
On Tuesday 26 October I met with Dr Aaron Watson from Kilmartin Museum in the Lamont Gallery. He had come to perform the first part of the process of creating a digital image of the Inveryne Stone in the hope that it may shed further light on the origin of the carving.
The process is called photogrammetry and involves taking hundreds of still photographs of the surface of the Stone to provide the data for a computer generated digital model which will be available online. To do this the glass screen had to be removed so that the camera could get close to the surface of the Stone.

As you will know the Covid 19 pandemic resulted in many places being closed for a considerable period. This resulted in the closure of all Churches and associated buildings in the United Kingdom. During this time Rev David Mitchell has been posting weekly reflections presented from the Sister Churches in turn on the West CowalWeb Site.
Recent relaxation in the rules mean that it is now possible to open Kilfinan Church for weekly worship with some restrictions. Social distancing rules mean it is necessary to book in advance by contacting Nick Ferguson on 07770 496896 or email@example.com Visiting our our Lamont Gallery and local history room at Kilfinan is,unfortunately, not yet permitted. In the mean time please visit the West CowalWeb Site where you can still listen to or watch David’s reflections.
You can find out more about the Kilfinan Heritage centre by visiting the Lamont Vault page on this site. The necessary closure of the centre to visitors could of course have resulted in a considerable loss of income but the continued generosity of our many friends at home and abroad has allowed funds to grow by£2098 to £8614.
We look forward to seeing you soon and would welcome feedback by following the instructions on our Contact Us page.

Christmas and Easter Services
As is our custom two special services will take place at Kilfinan over the Christmas period. The first of these will be the Christingle service on the Sunday before Christmas at 3.00 pm. This is specially suitable for children. The other service is on Christmas Day at 11.00 am.
Each year we also host two special services during Holy Week. The first of these is on Maunday Thursday and the second on Easter Sunday.
These services are always well attended.
The Late Jean Marshall
Many visitors to this site will have fond memories of Jean Marshall, painter, author and talented musician who for many years provided the music for our services.
Her son Bob has arranged for her book, “Dance to your Daddy” to be reprinted with some additions,
