The town of Rothesay lies on the island of Bute, in Buteshire, Scotland. It features a late medieval castle surrounded by a moat and can be reached by ferry from Whymss Bay which offers an onward rail link to Glasgow.
The town was long a popular destination for Glasgow folk going "doon the watter", and its wooden pier was once much busier with steamer traffic than it is today. The town also had an electric tramway which closed in the mid 1930s.
