Rothesay Castle, Isle of Bute

Stewart stronghold

Dating all the way back to the 13th Century, Rothesay Castle on the Isle of Bute, is remarkably well preserved in spite of its age. A unique structure, thanks to its distinctive circular design, the Stewart family originally built this castle to defend against Viking invasion. Later occupied by Robert the Bruce during the Wars of Independence and Cromwell's troops in the 17th Century - you will get a real taste of history surveying the Castle and its impressive surviving features.
