Isle of Bute Gin

Celebrate your appetite for life by enjoying local offerings at Bute Yard - your food and drink hub showcasing the best local, artisan and craft fare on the Isle of Bute.

Just an hour from Glasgow by car, and a short 35 minutes ferry crossing takes you to the beautiful Isle of Bute. Although one of the easiest islands to get to in Argyll, the Isle of Bute is often overlooked and many visitors to Scotland are yet to discover it. 

The island has unspoilt countryside, miles of coastline to explore, tranquillity and stunning scenery at every turn. A combination which, has encouraged many artists and artisans to make Bute their home. 

The late Marquis of Bute, John Crichton-Stuart, had envisioned creating a central area on the island where local arts and crafts, food and drink could be showcased and enjoyed. This vision has finally been realised with the opening of the Bute Yard. The Yard is the perfect place to relax, eat, drink and discover the talents of the local artists. 

So, make a point of visiting the Bute Yard on your next trip to the Ise of Bute and enjoy our island hospitality.
