VIDEO: Community fireworks light up Bute skies

The skies above Bute were a riot of colour on Saturday night as hundreds of revellers attended community fireworks displays in Rothesay and Kilchattan Bay.

While the Kilchattan Bay display has been a big feature of the village’s calendar for some time, the Rothesay event was the first to have been organised by Light Up Bute, a community organisation set up earlier this year to raise money to bring a fireworks display back to the centre of the town.

And with funfair rides, food, drink, live music, DJs and a large crowd in attendance, there seemed little doubt that Light Up Bute’s inaugural ‘Rock The Prom’ was a big success story.
