The Isle of Bute is a haven of peace and tranquility, a treasure trove of places to explore, and a glorious place to visit being so often described as ‘The Jewel in the Clyde’. Rothesay is the main town and is the fourth largest town situated on any Scottish island.
Rothesay steeped in history, is closely interwoven with the history of the Castle and the Stuart Family which dates back to the early 13th century. Declared a Royal Burgh by King Robert in 1400, home of wealthy Victorian industrialists in the latter part of the 19th century, and a popular and flourishing tourist resort in the first half of the 20th century, Rothesay has played many roles over the centuries, and each is prominently reflected in the town's architecture. Rothesay Castle originally commanded an outstanding defensive position on the shoreline, but is now located some 100 metres back from the shore, and is now in the heart of the town, due to the large-scale reclamation works undertaken in Victorian times. The classic Victorian seafront façade, promenade, and the pier in Rothesay were all built on this reclaimed land.
