IN PICTURES: Bute’s Christmas celebrations

The week or two leading up to Christmas is always a whirlwind of parties, Nativity plays and Santa visits here at The Buteman - and 2015 has been no exception.

The slideshow above features just some of the many photos we’ve taken in the build-up to the big day. For more see the December 25 issue of The Buteman - and also, for a last round-up of the festive season on the island, our January 1 edition, which goes on sale on Wednesday, December 30.

Light Up Bute's Christmas fair was held in St Andrew's Church hall in Rothesay on Saturday, December 12.
