Inchmahome Priory stands on a small island in the Lake of Menteith and must be one of my favourite Historic Scotland sites. Mary Queen of Scots resided on the island for a short time in 1547. The priory was placed in state guardianship in 1926.

The priory was founded in 1238. The nave and choir contain Ministry signs explaining the different sections of the church. The choir is the resting place of the onetime Liberal MP R.B. Cunninghame Graham (1852-1936), who was a key supporter of Scottish independence.
