St Ninian's Bay and Chapel

St Ninian’s Bay (also called The Straad) is a beautiful small bay on the west coast of Bute with a natural anchorage. The beach is covered with a sand of white cockleshells. The bay is protected by St Ninian’s point, a spit of land. From here you get views of Inchmarnock. It's also a great place for birdwatching.

St Ninian’s Chapel, an early Christian site associated with Ninian, stands on the narrow promontary. The site is cut off from the mainland at high tides and during storms. The chapel is a ruin, with walls and foundations visible on the ground.
