Isle of Bute: Ferries

Two Caledonian MacBrayne ferries operate between the mainland and the island, one from Wemyss Bay in Inverclyde and the other from Colintraive on the Cowal Peninsula to Rhubodach in the north of the island.

My photo below shows the MV Loch Dunvegan at Colintraive getting ready for the five minute crossing over the narrowest part of the Kyles of Bute




Below, the ferry, MV Bute, coming into Rothesay from Weymss Bay.


Alas, this completes my collection of Bute photos until I can visit again
(hopefully sometime this year)!

Isle of Bute: Rothesay Esplanade

A few of my photos taken on the Esplanade (there's a bit of overlap between this and my next blog of the harbour area)
