Rothesay is a classic seaside town on the Isle of Bute, in the Firth of Clyde, separated from the Scottish mainland by a narrow channel called the Kyles of Bute. The town’s heyday was in the Victorian era when its wooden pier was busy with ferries bringing tourists from Glasgow. Rothesay pier was the main focus of steamer traffic, and boasted a handsome Scottish Baronial terminal building which burned down in 1962.
