Excellent trip on open top bus around the southern part of Bute, starting and finishing in the centre of Rothesay (just opposite the ferry port). Lasts just under 2 hours, giving you a real feel for the highlights of the island and the places to go back to under your own steam.

We went on a lovely tour of the Isle of Bute on the 13 August 2015 on an open Top Tour Bus. We had a lovely driver called Ian. He was very friendly and polite. He gave a great commentary and information about the whole Island. He was very good to other drivers and always pulled in to let other... More

Our driver on the day Ian was excellent with great knowledge. The tour was very informative whilst Ian answered passenger questions and provided further information not on the commenrary. He allowed passengers time to take pictures, whilst being considerate to other road users.

A huge thank you to the driver, Ian who made this tour most enjoyable. He was very helpful & knowledgeable. The commentary was very clear & informative. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Totally agree with previous reviews about the driver being brilliant & considerate to other drivers, allowing them to pass while he pointed out view points... More

We booked this trip alongside our ferry ticket from Wemyss Bay. Paul the driver and guide was excellent with great local knowledge. I would really recommend this trip to anyone going to Bute. One thing I would say is that for a normal adult ticket the price was the same whether booking with the ferry ticket or direct with the... More

What a great tour and worth every penny. We loved every minute spent with the guide who is one of the best and most considerate drivers we have met. The Isle of Bute is a much bigger place than expected and it was made so special by all the information we were given. There are so many interesting little villages... More

Brilliant driver, very smooth journey and considerate to other road users, particularly the cyclists. This is nice to see given the poor driving standards that we sometimes witness. Great way to spend an hour and a half and we saw lots of places that we would never have seen otherwise. Good value and you can use the ticket for any... More

We were lucky enough to have Paul guide us round Bute, an experience to cherish. If you have a day on Bute, this is a nice simple way to see bits of the island and you can get off and on, which I didn't, but would consider next time to spend a bit of time away from Rothesay for a... More

We went on the Open top Bus Tour on our second day. It is well worth the money. An hour and a half for the tour, very friendly driver and very informative. It was one of the highlights of my stay.

A very picturesque island well worth a visit. Rothesay is quiet plenty of eateries and seats for viewing the loch. Mini golf is an attraction. Visit the stately home the magnificent chandeliers and chapel. The ferry runs frequently to the mainland.
