The replica of the original bronze Kilbride Belll was safely secured in place by Treeworks Oban who donated their time and skills for free
A project training the next generation of visitor guides in Argyll has completed a successful session at Kilbride’s historic kirkyard in Lerags Glen near Oban
Before the crowd of about 50 people watched the recasting process, the original bell from which the cast was taken was piped down the old drove road from Cologin to the Kirk site to receive a ceremonial welcome.
Proceeds from the concert will be divided between Friends of Kilbride, Oban Music Society and the Kilmore & Kilbride Community Fund.
Archaeologist Claire Ellis spend two days on the site, three miles out of Oban in Lerags Glen, after Historic Environment Scotland gave permission for more of the church’s past to be uncovered.
Kilbride Church desperately needs more funds to keep it safe and open to visitors as part of the historic site.
