Ruined chapel and burial ground

Kilmichael (St Michaels) Chapel is a ruined Christian site on the very north western tip of Bute overlooking the Kyles to Tighnabruaich yonder. There is also a burial ground. Estimated to have been constructed in the 5th or 6th century the chapel stands within a circular stone walled enclosure of locally sourced schist and bonded with clay. The last burials took place here in 1927.

A short distance to the south lies St Michaels Grave, a neolithic chambered cairn.

Direct access by vehicle is not possible - park at Glecknabae and walk north around 2 miles over easy ground. You will also pass the entrance to the Cairnbaan Chambered Cairn on the same walk.
