Kilchrenan (Scottish Gaelic: Cill Chrèanain) is a small village in the Argyll and Bute area of Scotland.

Kilchrenan Inn dominates the heart of the village

Kilchrenan is located near to the end of the B845 road, about a mile inland from Loch Awe. It forms part of the area of Avich and Kilchrenan Community Council.

The tomb of Colin More Campbell of Lochawe, who was killed at the Battle of Red Ford in 1294, can be seen in the churchyard of Kilchrenan. It is described as “a narrow old tomb with sculpture much defaced.”[1]
