St Blane's was recommended by a friend. It was a cold, wet and windy day with the occasional heavy shower. The walk up was gentle and the views across to Arran opened up once the clouds cleared. The site is well maintained, with information plaques explaining the history of the site. We found it very tranquil and spiritual, although we... 更多
Came here during a short break to Rothesay. Struggled to find the parking area to begin with, luckily the farmer let us park up at the enterance of his farm, which is right beside the path leading to the church. A short peacful walk up the hill around 15 - 20mins from the road and you are met with St... 更多
Really enjoyed a short walk uphill to St Blane's, used the parking for a couple of cars on the road at the bottom. Well worth it for the views. The site was interesting with a variety of graves from the vikings to the dark ages through to medieval times. Good historical information on the boards for visitors. Peaceful location with... 更多
The chapel is well worth a visit, although it is a ruin it is set on a hill overlooking the sea, it is a lovely attraction in a beautiful setting, would love to go back... next time will take a picnic.
Taken by a local friend. A most pleasant, relaxing and peaceful place. Only saw a few other visitors on our visit. Nice walk up to the chapel. Nice weather on our visit so good to see and sit around and contemplate life etc. Excellent views of the sea from various vantage points along the way.
Well worth a visit especially on a pleasent Autumn day. Really enjoyed wandering about the site, which is very well maintained
Another visit to this wonderful place. As ever, spirits lifted and we both felt amazing afterwards. Beautifully kept area with a lovely walk to get there.
We drove from the Kingarth Hotel after lunch heading towards the Standing Stones and passed St Blane's Chapel on the way. It looks well tended and from the numerous positive reviews is definitely a must for a future visit. An excellent example of early Christian history.
Took the road from the Kingarth Hotel signposted "St. Blanes Chapel. Drove for miles from B road to single track road. Eventually the road ended at Donagoil Farm ? No signage on the route and no signage at the end of the road. Could not find the Chapel. Left very dejected. Disappointing visit.
Really worth visiting. After walking from kilchattan it was a wonderful place too stop. It was our first time walking on Bute so everything was a new adventure. St Blane's is a truly tranquil place and we will definetly be back
