THE KYLES OF BUTE, WHICH CURVE ROUND THE ISLAND: WEMYSS BAY ON THE MAINLAND

THE KYLES OF BUTE, WHICH CURVE ROUND THE ISLAND: WEMYSS BAY ON THE MAINLAND

Sailing northward from Rothesay, one soon enters the beautiful strait called the Kyles of Bute, which runs up the north-cast side of the island, round its point, and down the western shore to the Sound. Just past Strone Point on its right bank are the woods of South Hall planted to represent the positions of French and English at Waterloo. Wemyss Bay (top), on the mainland shore, can be reached by rail or Clyde steamer. This is a pleasant modern seaside resort without any striking historical or archaeological interest.
