Our friend’s birthday was in June and we were struggling to think of somewhere fun, but affordable to go to. We decided that a day out to one of the Isles would be a great day trip! We left early in the morning to start our long trip to the Isle of Bute. First we took a train from Glasgow to Wemyss Bay
The morning seemed a bit dreary, but we persevered! We then took a ferry from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. Unfortunately it was so windy and rainy on the ferry that I didn’t manage to get any good pictures! Once we got into town, we took a walk around the castle and through the village. We walked all the way up a hill to get a good view of the island.
Our walk left us quite famished so we stopped in town to get the BEST FISH AND CHIPS EVER. But seriously it was so good. Amazing the difference when they use fresh fish! As we were sitting outside eating, the sun suddenly decided to come out! We grabbed an open top bus tour that took us all around the island. We saw some amazing sights!
After the tour, we settled in at a small brewery to have a pint before heading back home. All in all, it was a great way to celebrate a birthday!
