4. A raiding party was sent ashore, and the beach was properly explored. The picture is not very good - and will be replaced soon! The cows were investigated, and the 'red thing' examined.
A proper exploration of Bute will reveal standing stones, cists and a vitrified fort in the south at Dunagoil Bay. Many archaeological finds are on display at the Bute Museum in Stuart St. Early Christian sites dedicated to St Ninian & St Blane speak of the missionary faith of the first inhabitants of Bute.
We didn't find the vitrified fort... With the tide coming in we had to keep an eye on the dinghy. It was the only way back!
