I go to St Blane's regularly. It holds a lot of memories - rolling eggs early on Easter morning, walks with friends, quiet time spent alone.
If you have your own transport, it's a short but steep walk from the roadside. If you are relying on public transport, or just feeling more energetic, it makes a lovely walk from Kilchattan Bay via Garrochhead Lighthouse and Glencallum Bay on the West Island Way (for map of route pick up a guide from The Discovery Centre in Rothesay)
The ruins of St Blane's Chapel are nestled in a little dip between the hills, with stunning views of the Firth of Clyde and Isle of Arran. Once you get up there you seem to step away from the world for a wee spell. There's a lot of information on the guide signs, but it's well worth spending some time just sitting and pondering.
To be honest.... I had second thoughts about writing this review. It's a wee gem of a place..... and I'm not sure I want TOO many people to find it :)
