ABOUT BUTE

The island is served by two ferry services.  The principal ferry service operates from Rothesay to Wemyss Bay (crossing approximately 35 minutes) thereafter by road or rail to Glasgow Airport (approximately 45 minutes) and Glasgow (approximately 1 hour).  Glasgow-Prestwick Airport is approximately 45 minutes by road and approximately 1 hour by train (changing at Paisley).  The second ferry is at the north end of the island connecting it with the Cowal Peninsula.  It operates from Rhubodach to Colintraive (crossing approximately 5 minutes).   

Rothesay’s harbour provides mooring facilities with its popular pontoons and a new marina at neighbouring Port Bannatyne Bay (2 miles from Rothesay) is now operational. 

Schools

A new educational complex was completed in August 2007.  Rothesay Primary, the Pre-Five Unit, Rothesay Academy and Argyll College are located there.  The island has two additional primary schools.

Out & About

There are a wide variety of recreational activities including three golf courses, horse riding, sailing, fishing, walking including the West Island Way. 
The island’s attractions include Mount Stuart House and Gardens, Ascog Fernery, Rothesay Castle, St Blane’s Chapel and the ever popular sandy beaches at Ettrick Bay and Scalpsie with its seal colony.  There are many events during the year including the Isle of Bute Jazz Festival, the Cattle Show and Highland Games.  All of these combine to offer a good quality of life.
