Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Referred to as "The Jewel of the Clyde", the Isle of Bute is located in the Firth of Clyde and is the most accessible of Scotland's islands, located only 45 mins West of Glasgow. 14 miles long and 8 miles wide at its widest, it is an emerald gem with golden beaches set in a sea of azure blue. A recent celebrity wedding confirms Bute as an extra special, memorable and idyllic location.

The Highland Boundary Fault runs across Bute resulting in extraordinarily varied landscapes, rugged in the north dominated heather moorland, much gentler in the south 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.

Steeped in history with evidence that it was settled as far bas as 2000 B.C.. Standing stones at St Blanes and the vitrified Iron Age fort at Dunagoil testify to every phase of Scottish history. 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, whi8le the waters around the island are among the finest in Europe for wildlife.

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.

Port Bannatyne is situated in Kames Bay with a remarkable13-hole golf course and beautiful horseshoe-shaped bay, a favourite anchorage for passing yachts.

Kilchattan Bay lies in a sheltered bay a mile from Kingarth, with a beautiful beach, a favourite for generations of holidaymakers. It is also the starting point for the exciting West Island Way walk.

Kerrycroy is a peaceful village with a fine sandy beach and stone pier. It was designed by the 1st Marquess of Bute and inspired by the model of an English village.

Ettrick Bay is a beautiful broad expanse of sandy beach, about a mile long, with superb views across to the Isle of Arran and the Kintyre peninsula, while Scalpsie Bay is home to a large colony of seals.

Port Bannatyne

There is a host of interesting places to visit on the Isle of Bute. A "must-see" is Mount Stuart House, Britain's best example of Victorian Gothic architecture. You feel a sense of wonderment in every room, from the magnificent marble hall to the radiantly white marble-chapel. The 300-acre grounds, with their various gardens and glorious vistas over the Firth of Clyde, are a haven of tranquillity.

Another excellent visitor attraction is Rothesay Castle. The Stuart Kings spent their summers here; a stronghold whose circular design is unique in Scotland. Spend an hour or two exploring the castle, and you'll relive over four turbulent centuries of Scottish history — from when Vikings took control in 1230 to the burning by the Duke of Argyll in 1685.

Ascog Hall Fernery & Garden was built around 1870 and has now been fully restored. The fernery is a unique and beautiful feature housing 80 sub-tropical fern species including tree ferns found in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Mauritius and Mexico, as well as a Todea Barbara, estimated to be 1,000 years old.

Additionally, there are the world-renowned Victorian Toilets - never was a call of nature answered with such splendour! Rothesay's palatial public toilets were commissioned in 1899 during Bute's heyday as a holiday resort. The ornate design incorporates fine ceramic tiles, marbled and enamelled alcoves and glass-sided cisterns.

Bute also hosts many events throughout the year, many of which, like the now famous annual Jazz Festival, are now 'must attend' events. From the spectacular Highland Games, to the traditions of the Agricultural Show, from concerts to art and line dancing festivals, whatever your interest it can be found on Bute.
