Kilmodan Church, Glendaruel

Built in 1783 Kilmodan Church, is in the Clachan of Glendaruel in the Kilmodan parish of the Cowal peninsula, Argyll and Bute, West of Scotland. It is constructed to a Georgian T-plan design and a category B listed building. The walls are inset with shields from the previous church on the site and one is inscribed and dated 'SDC/1610.' There is also a memorial to Rev John Maclaurin and his notable sons . It has a rendered front and both the ends and rear are harled. The building underwent complete restoration in 1983.
The church is still in use though only on a part-time basis, holding services on the 3rd and 4th Sundays of each month.
The Kilmodan Carved Stones are located in the surrounding graveyard.
