At Clachan Strachur there was once a druidical circle but it was removed during the builing of the Schoolhouse.
A green stone axe was found during digging nearby it was given to the National Museum of Antiquities.
I only add this destroyed site to show that although there are now no stone circles on the Cowal peninsula, but back then there were at least two. Along with the burial chambers, standing stones and all the secretive rock art this was once a beehive of ancient activity.
