Butefest
Butefest Music Festival is taking place on the Isle of Bute from 26th to 28th July 2019 so we are expecting a huge increase in traffic travelling to/from the island. Normally Wemyss Bay is extremely busy on the Friday with queuing times in excess of 2 hours so to avoid this waiting time please consider using the alternative route to the island from Colintraive to Rhubodach which is a much shorter crossing time and is closer to the Festival site.

Bute Highland Games
The Highland Games will take place on the Isle of Bute on Saturday 24th August so the traffic travelling from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay on Friday 23rd will increase significantly and queuing times at Wemyss Bay will be very long. To avoid this waiting time please consider using the alternative route on to the island from Colintraive to Rhubodach which is only a 3 minute crossing time and runs every 30 minutes.
