Admin/Biographical History Kilmacolm Old Kirk was built in 1830. The parish church of Kilmacolm is on record in the early 13th century, but the dedication to a Colum, not necessarily Colum Cille, indicates a much earlier foundation. The chancel of the 13th-century church serves as the vestry of the present, 19th-century church. The burial-ground was in use until 1902. The South aisle, by J.B. Wilson, Glasgow, was added in 1903 and the church has early 20th-century stained glass windows by C.E. Moira, Norman Macdougall and Horace Wilkinson along with more recent examples by John K. Clark and Lorraine Lamond.
