Graveyards fascinate many folk. Many inscriptions tell abbreviated stories, which a little research can expand. Some offer philosophical advice, but there are also hidden depths of history, biography and sociology. Kilkerran church, Kintyre, Scotland, first appears on record in the mid-thirteenth century. The burial-ground has grown immensely since its expansion, in 1857, beyond the walls of the original churchyard. "Kilkerran Graveyard Revisited" forms a sequel to "An Historical and Genealogical Tour of Kilkerran Graveyard" by the same author and illustrator, published by Kintyre Civic Society in 2006 and still available from the Society. Angus Martin was born in Campbeltown. Editor of "The Kintyre Magazine", this is his twentieth book. Artist George John Stewart traces his Kintyre connections to the 19th Century. He started The Oystercatcher Gallery in Campbeltown in 1989.

'...even those who - like the present reviewer - have no ancestors in Kikerran, and only a shaky grasp of local history, will find treasure. Certainly this is anecdotal material, but it is solidly underpinned by Angus Martin's meticulous work - relationships, dates, derivation of place and personal names, all scrupulously referenced - so that both the browser and the researcher will be fully satisfied.' Moira Burgess, The Kintyre Magazine, Number 69, Spring 2011
