'A wonderful guidebook, both entertaining and highly informative.'

Peter Lederer, Chairman, VisitScotland

'This excellent guidebook not only includes some superb countryside walks but brings the recent history of our island to life.'

Johnny Bute, 7th Marquess of Bute

Bute, a forgotten island, is full of wonders to discover:
- Bronze Age tombs
- a castle unique for its design
- Scotland's finest High Victorian great house
- delectable farmland, moorland and bays of beguiling beauty
- wildlife in abundance, including seals.

For sheer splendour, the Kyles of Bute and the view to Arran can have few rivals.
And all this is only two hours from Glasgow.
Instructions for the walks are clearly set out in bold type and marked on the Ordnance Survey maps included.
Yet this is more than a guidebook. Whether you prefer to walk or to read in an armchair, you will discover an evocation of the lives of ordinary men and women in Bute. It will change your view of this island and leave you looking at other landscapes in a new way.
