About the ISLE OF BUTE

Bute (/ˈbjuːt/; also known as the Isle of Bute, Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Bhòid or Eilean Bhòdach) is an island in the Firth of Clyde in Scotland. It is divided into highland and lowland areas by the Highland Boundary Fault.

Bute is one of the most accessible Scottish islands, just a short 35 minute ferry ride across the Firth of Clyde from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay. You will see splendid Victoriana and art deco-style.

Rothesay is a wonderful seaside resort with palm trees, a promenade a castle in the middle of the town and award winning Victoriana toilets.

Bute has a rich and varied past and is home to ‘Mount Stuart house’ the Jewel in our crown.

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.

We love Bute and if you have visited then you will too, if you have not been ‘Doon the Watter’ to Bute then you must make the trip to see our Bute-i-ful Isle.
