Bute is a wonderful place to live. It genuinely is a lovely environment for raising kids or retiring or just working from home .
Here are some good reasons to base yourself here:

  • Glasgow is commutable – only 90 mins on ferry and the train takes you into Central Station.
  • There are 3 good primary schools and  a relatively new (2009) secondary school. Pre-school provision is excellent.
  • The crime rate is negligible.
  • Property prices have risen since the days of £10,000 flats but are still good value compared to the mainland.
  • The islanders are very friendly and welcoming.
