Here’s a little brain-teaser for you! What does Bute have in common with Arran, Helensburgh and Stonehaven? Give in? The answer is that they all lie on the Highland Boundary Fault.

Standing in the Highlands!

This boundary is one of four that runs through Scotland and separates two very distinct geographical terrains – the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland.

Just as The Great Glen fault line almost splits Scotland, the Highland Fault almost bisects Bute, running through Loch Quien and Loch fad and then heading off to Helensburgh and eventually up towards Stonehaven in the north east of Scotland.

It gives the island an outstanding claim to fame: you can travel from the Lowlands into the Highlands in a single step, right here on Bute!

If you want to have a little fun, find the signpost that marks the Highlands and Lowlands down at the putting green on the seafront and take some selfies!

The long walk to The Lowlands!

We’d love to see them!
