Lovely tranquil position. Although a ruin there are plenty of informative plaques providing historical background.

A nice walk up the well sign posted grassy track, into the tree line, it was a very windy day when we were there and it felt like we could be blown away, but once into the 'bowl' where the site sits the wind softened. Most of the remains you see today, of the nave and part of the chancel,... More

This was a recommendation from our hosts and it was a serene, tranquil gem. Not to be missed. There was a relatively steep climb but it was worth it for the views and general interest.

A beautiful peaceful place- with terrific views across the countryside and over to Arran The walk up is a little step and older people would find it challenging- there is a seat half way up Also it is generally quite muddy so wear appropriate shoes.

It is only a 15 minute drive from Rothesay and the final mile is single track so approach with caution. The walk to the church is not strenuous and once there... More

Lovely walk up to the old church with fantastic ( and peaceful ) scenery set on top of a hill surrounded by trees. Very tranquil and great to chill.

The surprisingly extensive ruins of St Blane's Church lie close to the southern tip of the Isle of Bute. Built in a sheltered hollow near the top of a south facing slope, its site comes complete with beautiful views south to the Isle of Arran and its outlier, Holy Island.

We have wanted to visit for years off our boat but never got to - did today by car and a walk and was really good - enjoyed the walk up, then look around, and walk beyond to the sea.
