There are very few towns that can boast to have a castle standing proud right in the centre, especially with such an unusual circular shape as that of Rothesay Castle.

A favourite walk is across Kilchattan Bay at low tide. This is a view towards Kerrytonlia Point. Yes, it often looks like a painting. After lockdown, I'll be heading across the red sand – even if the rain is horizontal. See you there !

Another sun sets on a warm day on Bute. Visitors are always given a warm welcome here, despite the ongoing restrictions of the recent pandemic, we have missed that busy atmosphere near. Hopefully not too long, before we can welcome visitors back here. It’s a friendly Island, where people look out for others and are happy to get involved in community activity. Golf, fishing, horse riding, bowling and cycling to name but a few. Walking and exploring our beautiful island too. There is always an opportunity to get out and about to try something new.

This is the view from my favourite fishing rock near the end of the road at Kilchattan Bay. It is where I come to fish, to think and to just "be". I hope to visit it again soon. It is a special place. Pure air, lapping water, passing ducks, gulls, seals – and the occasional dolphin. Botanists tell me there are very special plants hiding between the rocks and in the bog. It is a special place. It would be madness to build an industrial fish farm in this fragile environment. But that may happen if you don't speak up. Progress must be sustainable and in the best interests of the whole island economy, not for the benefit of faceless profiteering bankers with little care for our environment.

I think the palm trees in Rothesay are great, they make me think of a desert island! I was thinking today about whether they grow coconuts…

During lockdown my girlfriend Michelle and I felt so lucky to have Port Bannatyne and Kames Bay as our daily exercise walk. As well as the beautiful scenery,we were so fortunate to see things like Otters,Seals,Porpoise,Gannets,Roe Deer and a whole host of shore and woodland birds on our short walks to keep physically and mentally active. Such an amazing place I'm proud to call home 😊 #ilovebute
