Owner description: There are more than 350 ancient monuments within a six-mile radius of the village of Kilmartin, Argyll: 150 of them are prehistoric. This extraordinary concentration and diversity of monuments distinguishes the Kilmartin Glen as an area of outstanding archaeological importance. It is one of Scotland’s richest prehistoric landscapes. Kilmartin House Museum is an award winning world-class centre for archaeology and landscape interpretation established to protect, investigage and interpret this internationally important archaeological landscape and the artefacts that have been found here. At this unique and vibrant centre you can also see ‘The Valley of Ghosts’ audio-visual – a time travelling experience with breath taking imagery and haunting music. There is an on site shop and an award winning cafe. To find out more, explore our web site, wander through our interactive map and see what's on our Events Programme.

Kilmartin House Museum has three elements, a museum that interprets the landscape and history of the local area, scores of neolithic cairns, standing stones and prehistoric rock art sites and a lovely cafe and restaurant.

It is a great way to spend two or three hours, visit the museum, walk down the glen and then enjoy the home made baking and lunches. On a Thursday, Friday and Saturday the restaurant transforms into a fine dining establishment. It has a limited, but interesting menu that uses local supplies where possible. The portions are on the large side.
