Isle of Bute Travel Connections

Travel to Bute by ferry, steamer, seaplane or bus.

Getting to, from or around Bute can be as simple or as adventurous as you like. By car, you can be anywhere on the island in minutes – and there are local taxis and buses as an alternative. And, for the convenience and safety of Eastlands Park school children, the Rothesay Academy school bus picks-up almost from their door.

By Sea...

With fast and regular ferry services, travelling to and from the mainland for motorists and pedestrians is easy. At Wemyss Bay, on the mainland, road and rail connections couldn't be closer, making for effortless access or onward travel. Towards the north of the island, there is also the "wee ferry" which operates between Rhubodach and Colintraive on the picturesque Cowal Peninsula.

Not surprisingly, in addition to ferries, Bute is a haven for craft of all kinds, from private yachts and cruisers to the Paddle Steamer Waverley – the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world. These possibilities certainly bring choice and adventure back into travelling!

By Air...

Bute may also be unique in offering practical access to a range of less conventional modes of transport. Light aircraft have access to the airfield near Kingarth and there is seaplane access at Port Bannatyne.

...or even by Bike

The quiet roads and compact size of the island are perfect for travelling by bike, for convenience, fitness, or just to save (or savour) the wonderful environment. And, if you're planning an excursion to or from the mainland, it won't cost you any more to take your bike with you on the ferry.
