Welcome to The Shiskine Valley



St Molios Church of Scotland, Shiskine, Isle of Arran



HISTORY

It is thought that Molios was born about 570AD.  He had royal blood on both sides of the family: his mother was Gemma, daughter of Aedan mac Gabhrain, king of Dal Riada and his father was Cairell, king of Dal Fiatach, Ulster and Man.  He was probably in his late teens when he arrived on Holy Isle, foregoing a royal career. Molios wished to pursue a pastoral career and prepared himself for this by becoming a hermit, living in a cave on Holy Isle.  In Shiskine the Clachan was used as a burial site because of its association with St Molios and the first church was built there. When it became too leaky to use, the present church was commissioned.  The Red Church was opened for worship on 21st July 1889.
