The Isle of Bute lies in the Firth of Clyde, tucked into the spectacular sea lochs of southern Argyll and is less than two hours from the city of Glasgow. Bute is the ancestral home of the Stuart Kings of Scotland. The 800 year old ruin of Rothesay Castle was built by a hereditary High Steward of Scotland from which the surname Stewart, and later Stuart was derived. The circular design of the castle is unique in Scotland and withstood many onslaughts including an invasion by the Vikings. It was captured by the English during the wars of independence but in 1311 was retaken by Robert the Bruce. Partially destroyed by Oliver Cromwell's troops in 1659 and finally burned and sacked by the Duke of Argyll in 1685 the castle has been substantially restored over the last 120 years. Over the centuries the Isle of Bute has attracted many people who savour the peace & quiet and the friendly reception afforded to incomers and Lord Attenborough, the acclaimed film director and actor has a home on the island. Rothesay, the main town on the Island, offers a variety of individual shops, restaurants, bars, 18 hole Golf course, Primary and Secondary Schooling and regular car and passenger ferries connect the Island with Wemyss Bay to the east and Colintraive to the west.
