Along the stunning esplanade gardens, you'll find the renovated Isle of Bute Discovery Centre; a distinctive 1920s circular structure crafted from cast iron and glass. This centre, now a hub of entertainment with a cinema, theatre, and interactive exhibits, also serves as a showcase for the best of Bute. Consider exploring the remarkable Rothesay Castle, where dungeons, sturdy outer walls, and a grand hall have been meticulously restored. Adjacent to the castle lies the intriguing Bute Museum, offering a fascinating glimpse into the island's history. Follow the main roads for a scenic drive around Bute before returning to Dunoon.

Enjoy some shopping and a cup of coffee or a well-deserved snack, or take a leisurely stroll outside, find a bench and take in the breathtaking views of Ben Lomond across the Loch.
