Whilst exploring the beautiful Isle of Bute we stopped and made the short walk to visit St Blane’s Chapel. Despite some what some reviews say, this is not far from the main road (maybe 2 miles on a minor road), and is only a 10...More

There is a walk through some fields to get to the ruins. There is a magical atmosphere here, and the place is very peaceful.

Loved this place, beautiful scenery and a peaceful atmosphere. Well worth a visit. The only problem was that I had to walk up alone as my disabled husband couldn't walk up to it and had to wait in the car.

Any place on Bute from Rothesay is really no more than about 15 miles but you will need either a car or bike to get there unless you like the walking. It is well worth the effort to go and experience the location. About... More
