Isle of Bute

The Isle of Bute affords a host of relaxing walks and scenic vistas. Mount Stuart, a stately home, is a popular attraction. Like the nearby Isle of Arran, the Isle of Bute was a Victorian holiday favorite convenient for Glaswegians.

Rothesay, a faded but appealing resort, is the main town. Some of the ornate Victorian architecture is striking. In the old Victorian village of Wemyss Bay there's ferry service to the island. The many handsome buildings, especially the station, are a reminder of the grandeur and style of a century ago.
