Car Hire on Bute

Car Hire on Bute

Bute is a small island with an excellent bus service linking the main town of Rothesay with many of the main visitor attractions, from Ettrick Bay to Kilchattan Bay and plenty of places inbetween, including the impressive Mount Stuart House & Gardens.

Subsequently, there's only one option for car hire on the island, which is actually a community car club - visitors can book in advance though. If hiring is a must, you might want to look at providers in nearby mainland towns such as Largs, Paisley, Glasgow Airport or Dunoon.

During the summer, an open-top tour bus operates, linking in even more of our lovely beaches and attractions, such as Scalpsie Bay. Add to this an impressive range of cycle hire options, and most people really shouldn't need a car to get around.

Even the main town of Rothesay is quite compact, with everything you are likely to need in one place.
