Default How To get To Bute


Train to Wemyss Bay (see videoclip above) from Glasgow Central and then ferry. Come and have a look at my wind-swept domain. Port Bannatyne has the cheapest seafront properties in The Realm ! We have to do something to reverse depopulation !

I have accepted this invitation and taken a virtual trip to Port Bannatyne. Wemyss Bay Railway Station is indeed most impressive.

So having arrived off the ferry at Rothesay, I took a virtual taxi to Port Bannatyne and started a virtual pub crawl. So far the Port Inn, the Anchor Tavern, and the Russian Tavern seem most agreeable (hic).

When you get back to the mainland have a look at the (now closed) international airport at Largs. In 1945 there were flights (in Catalinas) to Reykjavik.

Largs and the WW2 Catalina Flying Boats.

I've really been enjoying Paul Murton's Grand Tour of Scottish Islands on Amazon Prime - I think a grand tour of my own upon my retirement is in order!

Susan Calman on TV is great viewing.Like Paul Merton,she has a very pleasing manner which makes the programme interesting.Especially for myself as I am seeing parts of Scotland I visited or lived in so many years ago.

Like others, I am deeply suspicious of the BBC and the "celebrities" it has created. Too often they turn out to be monsters. Should I remind you of that one who would reportedly "fix it"
