Hidden 2 miles down a single track road and beyond two farms, almost at the very southern tip of the Isle of Bute lies this place of peace, calm and solitude. It's worth every minute of the bouncy trek down the wee road and the 10 minute walk up the clear path to the ruins.
Parts of the church date back to the 6th century, but some of it is as late as 1896. Makes you wonder how this place began abandonned so quickly after standing for so long.
There are views over towards, the Firth of Clyde, Arran and a wee hill to the south east and in the warm sunshine, you could just sit on the lone bench all day recharging your batteries and enjoying this wee corner of Bonny Scotland. It's hard to imagine this was once the capital of Bute!
There are plenty of information signs to describe what the parts of church were used for and the path up to the site is very good, but maybe a little steep for those with mobilty issues.
