Our latest look back at the people and places of bygone Bute comes courtesy of reader Duncan Scott of Ardbeg.

It shows a group of Rothesay golfers with their Cowal Golf Club counterparts on a trip to the Dunoon club some time in the 1950s.

The Rothesay players in the group include John Stewart, Tommy Crichton, Duncan Scott himself, Jackie Davidson, Malcolm McLean, Tom Glen, John Coll, Willie McDougall, Bobby Weir, Walter Knowles and Davie Rodger.
