"Welcome to Bute Island Radio, community radio for the Isle of Bute in Scotland."

The Isle of Bute is located off the west coast of Scotland, approximately 90 minutes from Glasgow, in the heart of the River Clyde.  Known as Scotland's Madeira, Bute still sees many tourists and holidaymakers visit the island throughout the year, albeit not as many as the 40s, 50s and 60s.

The island today boasts many tourist attractions including the famous Mount Stuart House, Rothesay Castle, Bute Museum and many more.  For the more active, there are 3 golf courses.  You could even take a leisurely cycle round the island.  There are numerous places for eating in or out on the island, along with a wide host of B&B's and hotels.  For details on holidaying or visiting Bute, check out
