One of the most eagerly-awaited events in Rothesay’s summer calendar, the Bute Vintage Club’s annual charity rally and road run, takes place this Saturday, July 11.

The event now regularly attracts around a hundred tractors and vintage vehicles to Bute each summer - many owned on the island, but an increasing number from owners far beyond, who travel for miles to what is fast becoming a favourite fixture on the calendar for Scotland’s vintage tractor owners.

Vehicles will begin to gather on the Rothesay prom from 9.30am on Saturday and will be waved off at 11.30am on a tour of the island’s roads and lanes.

Entry to this year’s event closes tomorrow (Monday, July 6), and anyone wishing to take part who has not already registered should contact BVC secretary Robert McKirdy on (01700) 505424 by then.
