Beautiful Bute is one of the most accessible Scottish islands, just a short ferry ride across the Firth of Clyde.
It is a short trip from Wemyss Bay to the Victoriana meets art deco-style resort of Rothesay, with its palm trees and promenade. Attractions include Rothesay Castle, the stately home at nearby Mount Stuart, and some of the most beautiful beaches.
For such a compact island, Bute has some extraordinarily varied landscapes. From the lush, fertile and rolling hills of the island's heart to the craggy, heather-covered moorlands of the north and the delightful sandy beaches around the coastline, the island is a haven for walking, cycling, fishing and wildlife.
Rothesay is a smart Victorian seaside resort and the main town on the east side of Isle of Bute.
This highly accessibly town is very traditional with signs of its Victorian heritage all around Rothesay Bay. Dominating the shoreline amongst the glorious esplanade gardens is the refurbished Isle of Bute Discovery Centre, a unique 1920s circular structure, now incorporating a cinema, theatre and many interactive displays as well as showcasing the best of Bute.
