About the neighborhood
There are many wonderful walks and cycles to enjoy on quiet moorlands, beaches and lanes. Follow the West Island Way which is a fabulous signposted walk. Wildlife is in abundance with seals, otters, basking sharks, porpoises, ospreys and fantastic sea birds around the island. There are 3 challenging golf courses on the island- don't let the views put you off your swing. Bute is full of history with a castle, museum, cairns, standing stones, old chapels and Mount Stuart House.
Getting around
Cycling along the quiet roads is one of the best ways to see the wildlife and appreciate the views on the island. You can have a well deserved rest at Ettrick Bay for coffee and cake. There are many walks around the island too from West Island way to walking along the promenade. In the summer you can take a trip on the Waverley steamer to Isle of Arran. Buses link Rothesay with Ettrick Bay beach and Mount Stuart house. There are lots of reasonably priced taxis too.
