To preserve for posterity a unique part of Scotland's heritage and history with links to Iona and St Columba, the Knights Templar and Scotland's witch trials at Paisley in 1679.
Kilallan is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, essentially a church without a roof, in the Renfrwshire countryside. The structure is crumbling and with out urgent remedial works much of this historic structure will be lost to posterity. The works have been specified, agreed with Historic Scotland and tendered. Applications are being made to Historic Scotland and the Heritage Lottery Fund but more is needed.
What we'll do:
- Stabilise the structure, rebuild and repoint the walls where required and conserve the monuments within and without.
Why it's a great idea:
If action is not taken this nationally significant site will crumble. We owe it to future generations to pass on our heritage intact.
The educational spin offs will open up new chapters of Scotland's history for school children, students and historians alike.
How we'll get it done:
- Specailist stone conservators will undertake the works.
