Glen­barr Abbey

The Oban Times - - Feature -

Nes­tled among divine grounds with river­side walks and wood­land, lies stately Glen­barr Abbey and the MacAlis­ter Clan visi­tor cen­tre. The abbey pro­vides vis­i­tors with a glimpse of 18th cen­tury liv­ing, com­pris­ing sev­eral dif­fer­ent pe­ri­ods of con­struc­tion and ex­pan­sion. An­tique toys, china col­lec­tions, patch­work and gloves worn by Mary Queen of Scots are just a few of the in­ter­est­ing el­e­ments you will en­counter on your tour. Tours are con­ducted daily by Lady Glen­barr, Jeanne MacAlis­ter. After your tour, tea is served in the gift shop where you will find a great se­lec­tion of MacAlis­ter and Scot­tish gifts. Vis­i­tors to the abbey and visi­tor cen­tre have stated that if you are vis­it­ing Kin­tyre, this place is a ‘must see, to­tally un­usual and ab­so­lutely worth a visit.’
