About the Isle of Bute

The perfect balance of a Scottish island retreat within an hour and a half of Glasgow, Scotland's largest city and cultural hub and home to the 2014 Commonwealth Games, the Isle of Bute is surprisingly still a relatively hidden gem.

As you approach the island on one of the iconic Caledonian MacBrayne (known by the locals as Calmac) ferries, the fresh sea air fills your lungs as you drink in the spectacular views of the Kyles of Bute and Loch Striven and you recognise the happy feeling of relaxation, anticipation and unwinding into holiday mode.

Bute 15 miles long by 4 miles wide, with a famous 30-mile West Island Way footpath. The main town of Rothesay is a picturesque Victorian seaside resort, central to the island with a historic castle (encircled by a moat!), Victorian fountain and Art Deco pavilion. Just south of the town is Mount Stuart House - famous for its 18th Century grandeur, gothic chapel and beautiful walled gardens set within 300 acres (plus Stella McCartney’s wedding venue in 2006). The Victorian toilets by the harbour are also a popular tourist attraction - not to be missed!

The island, and its multitude of sandy beaches, is home to an array of wildlife, flora and fauna and is a bird watching haven.


Renowned in the golfing world as a location catering for every golfer, Bute can lay claim to 3 golf courses and a loyal following of fans who return to the island year after year to enjoy the links and parkland courses with their spectacular views and island hospitality.

Special Island events include the annual Bute Jazz Festival over the early Mayday Bank Holiday weekend, and the Agricultural Show and the Highland Games in August. In addition there are numerous sailing, golfing, cycling and other sporting events throughout the year.
