St. Brendan's Chapel Ruin

We found ourselves on the Kintyre peninsula along the western coast of Scotland, in a town so small it didn't appear in most of our guidebooks. Skipness contained only a few houses and a general store, but its location on the Kilbrannan Sound and its views across the sound to the Isle of Arran provided a remarkable blend of sea, sky and land. We parked where the road stopped and walked a short distance to the Skipness Castle ruins. A few hundred yards away toward the Sound stood the remains of St. Brendan's Chapel, with Arran in the background. On a sunny, calm, well-above-freezing January day, not a single other person stood there with us. Sometimes wintertime travel can be risky, but this time we won.
