St Modan's, Rosneath
St Modan founded a church at Rosneath in the 6th century, and died there. In 1880, a finely carved stone was dug up from the grounds of the present church. It has been dated to circa 800 A.D. and is thought to represent the tombstone of St Modan. It is preserved inside the church. The present building celebrated its centenary in 1953. In the grounds are the ruins of the previous church (1780), and the only known grave in Scotland of an African slave, Robert Story, who came to Scotland as a freed slave.
