The Church at Colintraive

For centuries, the parish church for the village was at Inverchaolain on the far side of Loch Striven To reach it often involved a wet and windy ferry journey across the Loch from Couston. A church serving Colintraive was needed and in 1840 the new building was opened.

This church is now linked with Kilmodan in Glendaruel and continues to play an active role in the life of the community.
