St-Modan_s-Church5151~0.jpg
St Modan's, Rosneath542 viewsSt Modan founded a church at Rosneath in the 6th century, and died there. In 1880, a finely carved stone was dug up from the grounds of the present church. It has been dated to circa 800 A.D. and is thought to represent the tombstone of St Modan. It is preserved inside the church. The present building celebrated its centenary in 1953. In the grounds are the ruins of the previous church (1780), and the only known grave in Scotland of an African slave, Robert Story, who came to Scotland as a freed slave.

Tarbet Church488 viewsThe former Ballyhennan Church near Tarbet is now the Ben Lomond cafe and craft shop. In the parish of Arrochar after the Disruption there was soon practical evidence of the spirit of evangelical fervour, and money poured in for a building fund. After an open-air Communion Service on the first Sunday of August, 1843, it was decided to petition the Free Church Presbytery for sanction to build a church and call a minister. A contract for building was entered with Dunoon builder Alexander Stewart for a church to seat 250 at £240 sterling. Work began on January 10 1844, and finished on April 11 1844. The Rev Colin Mackenzie was inducted to the Parish at Balhennan (now Ballyhennan) a week later. It ceased to be a church in 1966. Image date unknown.
