Pubs on Bute

Pubs on Bute

Someone once said that Bute has more pubs per head of population than anywhere else in Scotland! There's incredible diversity - from simple backstreet tap houses to lovely country gastropubs. Many of our bars offer entertainment, such as quiz nights and open mic / bring an instrument and jam type evenings. There's even a dash of karaoke on offer too, if that's your thing.

The majority of Bute's pubs are within staggering distance of each other, as well as the ferry terminal in the town, so if you find that the vibe isn't quite you, it's only a short walk to somewhere else that might be!
