About this location
The Argyll and Bute region
The Isle of Bute is Scotland’s most accessible island - only 45 minutes from Glasgow - yet still offers all the fantastic benefits of tranquil island life within stunning natural surroundings. Described as the ‘Jewel of the Clyde’, the island offers an array of captivating sceneries, sights and things to do.
The island was once the retreat of Scottish Kings, steeped in history as far back to 2000BC, you can explore standing stones at St Ninians and the vitrified Iron Ages fort at Dunagoil.
Bute is home to Mount Stuart, Britain’s most spectacular Victorian Gothic house and seat of the Stuarts of Bute, direct descendants of King Robert the Bruce. It is the architectural fantasy of the 3rd Marquess of Bute. The stunning, mysterious interiors of Mount Stuart reflect the romantic and the scholarly Marquess’s passion for art, heraldry, astrology, mythology and religion. The art collection is arguably the finest privately held collection of family portraits in Scotland. Mount Stuart sits within 300 acres of landscape and woodlands developed by the 2nd Earl of Bute and his son, the 3rd earl, in the 1700s.
Bute is a haven for nature lovers. The Highland Boundary Fault runs across Bute resulting in extraordinarily varied landscape. The north of the island is rugged and dominated in heather moorland, whilst the south offers more gentle scenery with lush, rolling hills and farmland. A rocky crag rises at the most southerly tip, making Bute a haven for walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding and wildlife.
Animal Lovers will adore the island. The north of the island, with its variety of woodland and open moorland, is one of the most extraordinary bird habitats in the West of Scotland; while the waters around the island are among the finest in Europe for wildlife. Make sure you visit Scaplie Bay to admire the large colony of seals relaxing on the rocks each day.
The Royal Burgh of Rothesay, the island's main town, has a most splendid Victorian frontage, reflected in the town's architecture which encircles Rothesay Bay. At the meadows you can enjoy tennis or squash, there are two putting greens at the esplanade gardens and bowling greens in Rothesay, Craigmore and Ardbeg. Rothesay leisure centre has a 25m pool, a fitness pool and sauna.
