Port Bannatyne exudes a charming village ambiance, with a unique 13 hole golf course, beaches and world class Marina on its doorstep. The Island has much to offer and is very popular with walkers who enjoy the sights of the West Island Way, including the beaches at Ettrick Bay and Scalpsie Bay with its views over to Arran. With trails around the island including the infamous Serpentine challenge, cycling is also very popular. There are festivals held annually including ButeFest, Isle of Bute Jazz, Bute Gin Festival, Bute Noir and Bute Highland Games. Loch Fad, set within an area of natural and scientific interest offers spectacular pike and trout angling opportunities. Mount Stuart, a 19th-century mansion with extravagant interiors, expansive gardens and contemporary art exhibitions is also located on the island. The World's last sea faring paddle steamer, The Waverley, draws crowds when it visits Rothesay each summer and the iconic art deco Pavilion is due to reopen in 2021 following a multi-million-pound refurbishment. The Island is served by two frequent ferry services and is within easy commuting distance from Glasgow with train services available from Weymss Bay.
