Just launched - Isle of Bute Break - June 2019 

Join us as we enjoy another social and walking weekend in Scotland. Our destination is the small island of Bute and the Glenburn Hotel in Rothesay. Bute is a pretty little island about 15 miles long and less than 5 miles wide just off the west coast of southern Scotland. With a population of around 6,500, it is very easy to reach from central Scotland and beyond and was a popular holiday destination during Victorian times when the Clyde was booming.

It still has much to offer with hills in the north, lots of sandy beaches, ruined chapels and forts.. Bute's many gardens benefit from the Gulf Stream which gives the island a mild climate enabling palm trees and other exotic plants to grow. One of the main visitor attractions is the spectacular Mount Stuart House which is definitely worth a trip.

This fantastic weekend offers real value as your trip includes Friday evening dinner, Saturday Walks (potential walks include Kilchatten Bay - a circular walk regarded as one of the finest on the island - around 6 miles and 300m of ascent, Kilmichael archeology walk, Glecknabrae - a 5 mile walk taking in ciarns and ruined chapel, perhaps linking with Canada Hill) and Place of Interest Itinerary (this may include Mount Stuart, Rothesay Victorian Loos, Rothesay Castle and Ascog Hall Fernery and Graden), Saturday evening meal and cabaret night and breakfasts on both mornings.  All for £129!  Single room and sea view upgrades available.
