Bute has many interesting places to visit from the majestic Mountstuart House, family seat of the Marquess of Bute, just 2 miles south of Montford Cottage, to Rothesay Castle with its close association with the Stewart Kings of Scotland.

There are plenty of sports and activities to enjoy on the island including walking, sea and loch angling, cycling (bike hire available) and golf. The island has 3 golf courses, each with its own challenges and all with spectacular views.

The main town of Rothesay is about 3 miles away and has plenty of facilities including a small cinema, swimming pool, visitors’ centre, shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. There is a lovely putting green on the front which is open in high season.
