Historic Kilbride records the story of this part of Scotland, from at least the arrival of Christianity to recent times, and, in addition to Clan MacDougall, many Scottish clans are associated with it, including Campbell, Livingston, McIntyre and more.
Our volunteers have contributed more than £35,000 and thousands of work hours to date to make the site safe and available to visitors and the community. We achieved Historic Environment Scotland Schedule Monument status for the site in June 2019 and funded our first archaeology dig in July 2020.
Now our Preservation Plan calls for us to urgently stabilise the west gable of the church, at a cost of £16,000. Without this work, the masonry is at risk of collapsing, risking our conservation efforts and making part of the site unavailable to visitors.We are also raising funds toward a £165,000 capital building preservation campaign.
Alternatively, we accept cheques payable to Friends of Kilbride. The mailing address is:

Want to volunteer?
Maintaining the grounds of Kilbride is a full time job, and we couldn’t do it without volunteer assistance. You can help out with a few hours of your time doing jobs such as cutting grass.
