Davaar Island and Kildalloig Estate

Lovely Davaar Island is situated at the mouth of Campbeltown Loch and is connected to the mainland at low tide by a shingle causeway known as the Dhorlin (see more details about crossing below).  At the north of the island is the lighthouse, while to the south is the island's famous cave painting of Jesus on the cross.  

The work was carried out in 1887 by local Art school teacher Archibald MacKinnon in secret after he had a dream telling him where to paint it.  MacKinnon left Campbeltown shortly after the painting was discovered but did return in 1902 and 1934 to carry out some restoration work on his stunning painting.  Since then the painting has been restored again in the 50s and in the 70s by Art teachers from Campbeltown Grammar School
