The monument consists of the remains of Strowan church and surrounding churchyard, but excluding the Somervell burial area. The site was in ecclesiastical use from an early date until 1829, when it was abandoned and has since fallen into disrepair, having been unroofed at the date of its abandonment. The area to be scheduled consists of the entire graveyard, including its perimeter wall, but excluding that portion of the graveyard lying to the N of the church ruins, as marked in red on the accompanying plan.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance as a site with continuous ecclesiastical use from early Medieval times until 1829. The present ruined church and burial ground overlie the remains of their predecessors, and have the potential to provide important information about ecclesiastical architecture, burial practices and parish organisation over the centuries.
