The Oban Times - - News -

A TOUR­ING ex­hi­bi­tion en­ti­tled Scot­style, cel­e­brat­ing Scot­land’s 100 best build­ings, will be on view in St Co­nan’s Kirk, Lochawe, from Satur­day (June 18) un­til July 3. St Co­nan’s is the only venue in Ar­gyll and Bute.

Dur­ing the two weeks, vis­i­tors can en­joy a num­ber of spe­cial events.

On June 22, chil­dren from Taynuilt Pri­mary will be in the kirk mak­ing a large tex­tile col­lage for this year’s St Co­nan’s Cup for Art. The en­tries for the cup will be on dis­play. Lo­cal art groups for adults and in­di­vid­u­als will also be at work draw­ing and paint­ing.

Those wish­ing to learn more about the his­tory and ar­chi­tec­ture of St Co­nan’s Kirk can join guide-led tours which take place at 2.30pm each day. And a new in­for­ma­tion area is be­ing set up in the kirk telling the story of how St Co­nan’s came to be built and fea­tur­ing many pho­to­graphs.

On Satur­day June 25 at 7.30pm, Ian Bradley will talk about ‘St Co­nan’s and Ar­gyll’s mys­ti­cal land­scape’, while on Mon­day June 27 at 11.30am, there will be a ‘med­i­cal plants walk’ with Anna Hill.
