Went on the tour today. Paul was an excellent driver/guide who was very knowledgeable and gave us a very amusing commentary throughout the tour. Well worth doing.

We’re staying on the island courtesy of Calum’s Cabin. Our wee boy is currently using a wheelchair and Paul kindly made sure he was able to get upstairs for a good view. Paul’s chat and local knowledge made the trip, would recommend to everyone.

Went on the tour bus today. Paul did a great job of pointing out all the sights and his patter was on point (most of the time ). Well worth the money.

Took a day trip to Bute from Glasgow via Wemyss Bay (train and ferry times coordinate well). Decided to jump on the City Sightseeing bus to see more of the island than just the main town of Rothesay. It was excellent!! Our driver, Paul, was...More
