Blane's chapel is about 10 miles drive from Rothesay. Quite easy to find and a little walk uphill from where the vehicles are parked. the walk would be a little challenging for those who struggle to walk uphill as it is a little steep in places. The visit was well worth it for the views and to see the chapel/church... More

Like a lot of Bute's heritage sites, this is poor in information, parking, accessibility and curating. Not good!

It is just so much part of Bute's history that it should always be on the itinerary of anyone visiting the island.

I thought that this place sounded good on the map that I was given by the ferry company and it turned out to provide one of the best moments of my stay in Scotland. It's at the southern tip of the Isle of Bute and involves a short uphill walk from some roadside parking. The site provides wonderful views across... More

While the hill to the Church is short it is quite steep and certainly it's worth the effort. Not for the heavy asthmatics or the elderly though. It would be nice to have a path to wind around each point of interest as we stumbled across a few in our wanderings (actually following around what looked to be a blind... More

Probably one of the most interesting and accessible ancient monuments in Scotland. The approach walk is spectacular and the site is perfectly easy to walk round. Most of the work has been done by local volunteers and their effort has ensured a comfortable site. Great for kids to explore.
