Welcome to Bute – filmed and edited by Brian Barr

An episode of an STV series on Scotland’s towns. It was filmed in the 1990s and focuses on the built heritage of Rothesay. Very interesting despite the tedious and dated musical soundtrack……..

A short video about local horologist Michael Swift and his son.

A BBQ masquerading as an archaeological experiment…. Seriously, a very interesting recreation of an ancient cremation.
Filmed for the Discover Bute Landscape Partnership by Brian Barr in 2011
