St. Modan's Church

The Window at the East end of the church is in memory of the Rev. McLeod Campbell who was welcomed at Rosneath after being shunned by the church at large for writing a book The Nature of Atonement which asserted that salvation and atonement were available to all and not just the elect few.

The window was designed by the Edinburgh firm of Clayton and Bell and installed in 1873.
