Inchinnan Carved Stones

Channel your inner Indiana Jones and explore two remarkable groups of carved stones dating back millennia.

The archaeological artefacts are believed to mark the final resting place of prominent figures from the long-lost Kingdom of Strathclyde dating from around AD 900 – 1100. It is thought the Kingdom was a significant stronghold which reached its peak as the Vikings were waging bloody raids on Scotland.

One group of stones from the 12th to the 17th centuries are thought to include Knights Templar stones.

The stones originally came from the demolished All Hallows Church, which was active in medieval times and dedicated to St Conval.

Incredible history and remarkable architecture

I love the fabulous architecture - Paisley Abbey, Coats Memorial and the town hall, all within walking distance.

What's Our Story?

In a town that sees creeping influences of Mackintosh and Thomson amongst others, it very much extends the structural beauty of Glasgow to its neighbour in the west.
