Colintraive Church is a hidden gem and the best place to see it is from the Waverley Paddle Steamer as she cruises through the Kyles of Bute.  It sits on the shore and is quiet and simple.  The best view inside is from the pulpit where you look up the length of the Church and see the boats go by.  Its well known by sailors as its the point where the tide turns in the Kyles. 

It's open all year round.  Have a read at the visitors book to see where people come from.



Of the four Churches in West Cowal Kyles Church is the largest and the most practical for modern Church life.  Situated in the village of Kames it is used for worship and a host of activities thanks to its hall and facilities.

If you are visiting in early May the Cherry Blossom is spectacular, "but then the wind blows and it is gone" (Psalm 103)
