The Isle of Bute itself is situated on the Firth of Clyde and has regular ferry connections from Wemyss Bay(35 minute crossing) and Colintraive (5 minute crossing)

Rothesay is very popular not just as a holiday destination but as a commuter island due to its accessibility to the mainland with ferry connections every hour. Attractions on the island include Rothesay Castle and Mount Stuart house which is an important and recently restored tourist attraction/wedding venue. The island boasts three golf courses and beautiful sandy beaches.
