Bute, Scotland- One Town, One Fabulous Holiday
The most notable difference between the county of Bute, which also happens to be an island, and the remainder of Scotland is that Bute has only one town. Rothesay is the sole location where travellers and residents find themselves when they locate to the island. The island is divided in two by both the Highland Boundary Fault Line and also the Loch Fad which runs along it. In the north there is uncultivated and hilly land while south of the line is much smoother. Even though the county boasts only four schools, it has several sports and activities that holiday travellers can pursue. This is because aside from farming, tourism is the top industry in Bute. Part of that is the natural beauty and the other part is the prehistoric presence.
