    Let the Loos Lure you!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To be honest, I am writing this tip out of purely egoistic reasons: So that I can become a member of Sirpa's prestigious and exclusive Virtual Toilet Society! Incidentally, these loos are a true tourist attraction on the Isle of Bute. It may be true that Bute, just like Dunoon, has seen busier times when it was the fashion to take a steamer trip "doon the watter" from Glasgow. However, Bute still is a nice place certainly worth visiting if you don't mind the short ferry crossing. Apart from a pee(k) into these landmark toilets, be sure to visit Mount Stuart house and head out to the even lesser visited Western coastline for some dramatic views of the jagged peaks of neighbouring island Arran.

    The toilets have full wheelchair access, though this is probably not an original feature :)

    Mount Stuart!

    Mount Stuart House is where the first Marques of Bute lived in the early 1900's. This beautiful mansion and surrounding gardens are a must see, you are missing out on a large part of Bute if you do not visit. The gardens are tremendous. Buses run to and from Mount Stuart at regular intervals to allow time to view, then get back into town for the next ferry home, but of course you want to stay to get a better picture of Rothesay, theres more to the beautiful Island than just history and water!

    Everywhere you go in Rothesay there are hills or tracks where you are required to walk down or through to get to another beatiful part of Bute. This is one of the main activities on Bute!

    Equipment: Walking Boots, rainproof jacket.
