Isle of Bute

Welcome to the Isle of Bute – Fàilte gu an t-Eilean Bhòid

Bute is only 33miles from Glasgow (as the crow flies) so a trip down the Clyde is definitely an option.  We are one of the most accessible of the westerly isles from the Scottish Central Belt. It’s a peaceful island haven, just a stone’s throw away from the mainland. Take a look at our Getting to Bute page to arrange your travel

We are only 15 miles long by 4 miles wide but there is loads to see and do. You might spot porpoises accompanying your ferry journey and if you’ve never seen a seal up close in the wild head over to Scalpsie Bay. The West Island Way  is an island long marked trail which can be tackled in sections – it’s a great way to see Bute’s flora and fauna and of course the views to Arran and Cowal…
