Welcome to Bute
Bute lies pinched between the thumb and forefinger of the Cowal Peninsula, separated from the mainland by a narrow, scenic strait. The Highland Boundary Fault cuts through the middle of the island so that, geologically speaking, the northern half is in the Highlands and the southern half is in the central Lowlands
