|The geomorphological variety on Bute, together with the mild macro-climate and the range of micro-climate regimes, combine to produce a truly remarkable bio-diversity, making the Island a nature lover's delight. Two sites on the Island are designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest . Moreover, the waters around the Island are some of the finest in Europe for wildlife, hosting resident colonies of seals, oystercatchers, gannets, eider duck, swans and many other species. More than 100 species of birds live on the Island.
This Gallery records its grateful appreciation to two committed photographers on the Isle of Bute -
Zak Harrison and Philip Kirkham
who so graciously consented to the use of a selection of their excellent photographs. Thank you Zak and Philip!
