The monastic site of Kingarth lies at the southern end of the isle of Bute and is in the care of Historic Scotland. It is the location of the 12th century church of St Blane. The hog-back tombstone is marked with an explanatory Ministry sign. It reminds us that the tomb was ‘traditionally but mistakenly known as the tomb of St Blane but in fact a grave-marker of a Viking settler’.
Other Ministry signs appear at Kingarth.
