Bute welcomes 2011 in style

BUTE'S new year celebrations brought in 2011 in style on Hogmanay - and the island hasn't quite stopped partying yet.

Several venues held Hogmanay shindigs in Rothesay and beyond, while after the New Year cobwebs had been shaken off, January 2 featured the annual Jazz Across The Kyles gig at Colintraive village hall and a fund-raiser at Rothesay Golf Club in aid of Help for Heroes.

Featured here is a small selection of images from just a few of the events held over the New Year holiday period on Bute - we hope to add to the six images featured here as more pictures are sent in.
