Bute Open Top Bus Tour

Grab a seat and enjoy a great introduction to the Isle of Bute. With full English commentary, your tour lasts approximately one and a half hours, departing from Guildford Square in Rothesay. We pass the Isle of Bute Discovery Centre then Ardbeg Point, Port Bannatyne, Kames Castle and the 'One Man Burial Ground' before continuing to Ettrick Bay. Following the coast road south we'll stop at Scalpsie Bay to enjoy the peace and tranquillity before heading towards Kingarth, Kilchatten Bay and Ascog Bay.

There's a stop at Mount Stuart for those wanting to visit this stunning Victorian Gothic mansion, a must see. Your tour ends at Rothesay Pier with ample time to catch the ferry back to Wemyss Bay.

Your ticket is valid for one day and can also be used as an all day pass on West Coast Motors local bus services.

For lovers of
relaxed round island tours, minimal walking.
