Rothesay - UK, Scotland

Rothesay, on the island of Bute in the Firth of Clyde, is an important base for visitors who come for the beauty of the scenery, as well as to walk, climb, sail and fish. The island is separated from the mainland by a narrow, winding strait called the Kyles of Bute. The terrain in the northern section of the island is high, rugged, and barren, attaining an elevation of approximately 277 m (909 ft). Points of interest include the ruins of Rothesay Castle, built in the 14th century and Mount Stuart House, a spectacular High Victorian Gothic mansion featuring interiors decorated with astrological designs, stained glass and marble.
