Bute’s hidden treasures have put the island shoulder-to-shoulder with Sydney, Antigua and the Great Wall of China on the ‘See Before You Die’ travel website.
The island’s entry states: “Overlooked by tourists to Scotland, the Isle of Bute remains untouched by modern developments.
“Castles and prehistoric settlements; empty beaches and standing stones; historic Mount Stuart House and a real Russian tavern; wild deer and seals; Highlands and forest; golf and fishing; birding and horse-riding; stunning scenery.”
The See Before You Die site states that is not a commercial operation, and that “this virtual community’s only intention is to share information about the most exciting places in the world”.
“We are not a commercial site,” the ‘About’ section of the page continues, “so your contribution is essential for us.”
