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.

Interesting historic carved stones & Old graves, so peaceful in beautiful surroundings
A beautiful little Church in an idyllic setting. A little treasure that is well worth a visit. Also home to the Kilmodan Carved Stones situated in a hut in the back of the graveyard.
