This week’s trip into the archives features a visit to Rothesay police station in (we think!) the early ‘noughties’ by children from the town’s Apple Tree Nursery.

If you can put names to any of the faces - particularly the young ones! - please let us know by emailing news@buteman.com or calling (01700) 502503 during office hours.

Thanks, meanwhile, to all those who helped identify the Rothesay Primary School pupils pictured in our nostalgia slot last week. We think the picture dates from 2004 and features, among others, Kieran and Caitlin Parkins, Rhona Donald, Savannah Knowles, Marissa Ballantyne, Darren McEwan and Heather Macrae. Bet none thought they’d appear in Bygone Bute a mere 12 years later!

If you have any old pictures of the people, places or events of bygone Bute, we’d love to help you share them with other readers. Scanned pictures can be emailed to news@buteman.com, or you can give us a call on (01700) 502503 to tell us about your collection.
