St. Ninian's Chapel

Christianised Site


Visited 12.6.12

This is a stunning location – the beach isthmus is something to behold.
White sand / turquoise waters – like something from a Bounty advert!

On the way to the beach we spotted a group of about 20 seals sunning themselves on a secluded cove. We stopped the car and looked down from the top of the cliff. They saw us and shuffled into the water. The sea was so clear we could see them all swimming about – what a sight!

Karen and the children played on the beach while I walked out to the island for a quick look at the chapel ruins. The ruins are fenced off but access is available through a gate.
An information board and bench have been thoughtfully provided.

This is a ‘must see’ site – more for the surroundings than the actual ruins.
