Bute to host scooter rally this weekend

The members of the Animals Fae Naboombu scooter club are holding their 25th anniversary rally on Bute this weekend.

The club, which takes its unusual name from a fantasy island featured in the 1971 Disney film Bedknobs and Broomsticks, is returning to the ilsand following a highly successful first visit in 2009.

The rally’s home base for the weekend will be the public park in Port Bannatyne, though members of the public will also be able to see the club members’ lovingly maintained scooters on display in front of Mount Stuart house between 12 noon and 1.30pm on Saturday, July 7.
