Loved visiting here with my family. We checked out the church and then walked up to the MacLaren monument which is special to us as MacLarens! Beautiful views as well of the Loch Voil.

Be sure you hike up a little ways past the church to the small waterfall. Also, hike to the top and see the MacClaren monument!

A quaint churchyard with the grave of Rob Roy plus ruins of the earlier church. Worthy of a quick visit if you're nearby.

We explored the trails behind the church and enjoyed finding a waterfall and a beautiful pine forest. The graveyard is quite amazing. Had dinner at Mhor 84 afterward. Neat spot!
