PLEASE SCROLL DOWN.


Of all the Scottish islands, Bute has the 4th largest town (ROTHESAY: 5000). Rothesay is steeped in history, which is closely interwoven with the history of the Castle which dates back to the early 13th century. During the late 14th and early 15th centuries Rothesay Castle was a favourite residence of Robert II (King 1371-1390) and Robert III (King 1390-1406). Robert III was the first monarch to designate his eldest son (David) the Duke of Rothesay thus commencing the tradition of the Dukedom. The title is still bestowed on the heir apparent to the throne and accordingly is currently held by HRH Prince Charles. It was also Robert III who gave the town of Rothesay its Royal Charter in 1401. Rothesay's Charter is the first occasion in which the term 'Royal Burgh' is used in a Scottish document.

Bute also has a range of other settlements from small hamlets (e.g. Kingarth, Kerrycroy, Straad) to villages (e.g. Port Bannatyne, Kilchattan Bay).
