It's a shame this beautiful church is ruined now; you can see how amazing it must have been in its former glory. An interesting walk, and a keen photographer will make much of its structural power.

Visited this church and graveyard in search of ancestors. This church has obviously been a wonder building, sad that is now in ruins. The church yard is immaculate.

Once you have found this little gem it is well worth a stop and some pictures. Historically interesting and aesthetically pleasing, it needs to be done.

Difficult to get to (roads and farmers moving cattle!!) and hardly any signage to help. Parking was difficult.

Stopped by this Ruin on the way to the beach while visiting the Isle of Bute. I took a couple of very cool photos while there which I have added to this review. Well worth a stop for some photos on your way around the Island. I think the photos I took there are amoung the best I have ever taken.
