Rothesay is the principal town on the Isle of Bute, set on the Firth of Clyde. The island is served by two frequent ferry services, the main one is Rothesay to Wemyss Bay (approx. 35 minutes), thereafter by road, Glasgow Airport is approx. 45 minutes, Glasgow approx. 1 hour and Edinburgh approx. 2 hours. The other ferry is located at the north end of the island operating from Rhubodach to Colintraive (approx. 2 minutes) The island is within easy commuting distance to Glasgow with train services available at Wemyss Bay.

The Isle of Bute is a popular destination not just for holidays but for those who wish to enjoy a lifestyle change since the regular ferry sailings and the proximity to both Glasgow and Prestwick airports make any form of commuting relatively easy in comparison to other island locations. Further information on the Isle of Bute is available on Visit Bute’s website— www.visitbute.com
