Coach holidays to the Isle of Bute
The peaceful setting of the Isle of Bute, located at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, is a real gem in Scotland’s crown and an unmissable destination for a coach holiday. Boasting one of the mildest climates in Scotland, due to its Gulf Stream, the island is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts with stunning landscapes and spectacular views in every direction.
Despite the island being renowned for its rugged peaks and rolling hills, five unspoilt and wonderfully peaceful beaches can also be found on the island, each providing stunning views of its neighbouring islands. The best way to explore the picturesque scenery of Bute is from an open-top bus which stops at fabulous viewpoints and natural beauty spots along the way.
The main town of the island is lovely Rothesay, a traditional Victorian harbour town with a beautiful seafront and pier offering wonderful sea views. Here you can enjoy a leisurely afternoon in the many shops or take in the magnificent Rothesay castle which stands proudly in its centre, or Mount Stuart, a flamboyant architectural masterpiece and seat of the Stuarts of Bute. Rothesay is also a great place to witness the famous PS Waverley, the last remaining paddle steamer in the world!.
