Vault and Gallery Fully Open
The Lamont Gallery is at last fully open to the public. It will be open twenty four hours every day of the week.
It has been a long haul to get to this stage. As many will know the Vault has been open for some time and the Gallery was open until the installation of the Inveryne Stone. For safety and security reasons the authorities insisted that a plate glass screen was fitted in front of the stone before it was put on view. It has taken some time to source suitable fixings for this but everything is finally in place.
We look forward to seeing visitors and would love it if you were to give us your feedback on the form on this site or directly by e-mail.

We recently found out through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission that one of the graves in the Churchyard is a designated War Grave from WW 1
It is that of Alexander Weir (Plot 135) who was an Able Seaman with the Mercantile Marine Reserve who died on 19 October 1915 in the service of his country.

This was specially suitable for children. The other service was on Christmas Day at 11.00 am. Both services were very well attended.
Each year we also host two spacial services during Holy Week. The first of these is on Maunday Thursday and the second on Easter Sunday. Both were well attended.
The Service of Remembrance in the Church and the laying of a wreath at the War Memorial will take place on Sunday 13th November.
The Charity Shop in Tighnabruaich had been leased by a an organisation called the Friends of West Cowal. It has been such a success that the Churches have purchased the premises outright.
All proceeds from the shop will be used for the benefit of the four churches of the Parish. In the first full year a total of £10,000 was distributed to the three congregations.
Service of Remembrance
The Annual Service of remembrance will be held at 12.15 PM on Sunday 13 November.

All are invited to a Soup and Sandwich Lunch in the Village Hall afterwards. All proceeds will go to the Erskine Hospital.
