The Easter holiday weekend means the start of Bute summer ferry and bus timetables - and it looks like there could be some good weather coming too.

CalMac’s summer 2015 timetables and fares come into effect today (Friday), with additional sailings running on weekend evenings on the Rothesay-Wemyss Bay route until the end of October, while the Rhubodach-Colintraive ferry runs until 9pm all year round.

This weekend also sees the start of West Coast Motors’ summer-only bus service to and from Ettrick Bay, with Port Bannatyne buses serving the popular west coast beach every hour during the day from Monday to Saturday.

The Bute weather forecast for the Easter weekend varies depending on which source you use, but all are united in predicting that the weather will steadily improve during the course of the four-day holiday period, with no significant rain forecast after the early hours of Friday.
