Things to Do in Bute

Many activities on the Isle of Bute  involve being out and about in the peaceful surroundings.  Walking many of the walking routes and paths, fishing at one of the Lochs or trying your hand at sea fishing. Some people even bring their own boats.  There is Kayaking if your keen! There is also Horse riding at Ardbrannan, Golf at one of the golf courses and beach combing many of the bays and beaches. There is a wealth of wildlife that you may not have had the opportunity to see before - Roe deer, birds of prey, porpoise and sea otters.

Art galleries and gift shops and a good choice of coffee shops, pubs and eating places and don't forget the fish and chip shops and ice cream! Rothesay wouldn't be quite the same without them!
