Argyll's beautiful, rugged and extensive coastline saw the birth of the nation and gave Christianity the first footing in Scotland. The Church then witnessed the dawn of the industrial revolution and became the nautical heart of the British Empire. The diversity and wealth of history is reflected in the variety of churches in the region. With maps, 8 pages of colour photographs, dozens of illustrations, Gazetteer and opening hours.
SCOTLAND'S CHURCHES SCHEME is a charity which promotes spiritual understanding in a multi-denominational context by enabling the public to appreciate all buildings designed for worship and active as living churches. It promotes the common purpose of mission and education by opening Scotland's churches and welcoming visitors, tourists and pilgrims.
