Bute is very  easy to reach from the mainland.  The ferry terminal at Wemyss (pron. “weems”) Bay is only a 45 minute drive from central Glasgow. There is also a direct link by rail from Glasgow Central station to the  ferry. The crossing  takes approximately 35mins to Rothesay.
The Scenic Route
You can also reach Bute by car (or bike) using a more circuitous and spectacular route by driving up past Loch Lomond and through the mountains of Argyll. This brings you to the tiny village of Colintraive from whence a small ferry crosses the Kyles of Bute to Rhubodach on the north of the island. Drive south to Rothesay from here and locate us on the seafront.

Once you are in Rothesay,  Cannon House is very easy to find.  Just turn left off the ferry and we are situated in Battery Place about 100 yards along the seafront after the last shop.
