Review of St Blane's Chapel

St Blane's Chapel
Reviewed September 2, 2012

a strenuous walk to view this ruin but well worth the effort, we even had our own little toto to guide us, a small dog met up with us just before this site and became our guide dog until we were safely down on the main road again.

The Chapel setting gives a sense of peace and an understanding of time gone past, worth visiting has parking space near at hand and a short uphill walk which is a moderate climb, there are additional walks nearbye

A sense of remoteness, community and hardship for islanders in days of old. Enjoyed the expansive views on a crystal clear day too.

You have to make an effort to get to St Blanes - it's at the end of a long, narrow road right in the south of Bute and once you've parked, it's a 10 minute walk up a hill to get there. But it's worth it. The place has its own atmosphere and the remains are remarkably well preserved. The interpretation by Historic Scotland is also very good.

St Blane's chapel is one of the most beautiful and tranquil places on Bute. Park in the lay-by along the fence at the end of the road past Dunagoil. Do not park in the turning area. Walk up the newly constructed path to the chapel gate. The new path means that what could be a muddy walk is now dry. The path does not extend all the way to the chapel as it is a Scheduled Monument. The route to the chapel is grassy and a bit steep but well worth it.
