Hands-on activityGuided walk or tour

This year Kilmartin Museum will be celebrating its 20th year, and the festival activities are focused on the enchanting monuments and historical sites that sit within Kilmartin Glen and the surrounding area. Visitors can join our very experienced volunteer guides on a journey along the Kilmartin Glen to visit the Neolithic and Bronze Age Burial Cairns, Standing Stones and the Stone Circle of Temple Wood. Alternatively, visitors can visit the magical and beautiful ruins of the Arichonan deserted settlement.
Children will have the opportunity to take part in a simulated dig, work in clay and create their very own ‘Rock Art’ design tile or create a minature Prehistoric landscape.
So, why not join us for the festival and help us to celebrate the unique heritage and landscape that surrounds our Museum.
