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

From the car park there's a lovely walk over even ground to the wee valley on the hillside that still oozes spirituality. If you have time, climb to the top of Blane's Hill opposite for stunning views. If you've found... 更多
Wonderful site to explore. Take a brolly (for rain or shade) and stout footwear. The surrounding coastline is also well worth exploring with fantastic views of mountainous Arran to the southwest.
