[Isle of Bute Discovery Centre]

Step off the Rothesay ferry onto the Isle of Bute and the first place any first-time visitor should go is the Isle of Bute Discovery Centre, on the right hand side of the CalMac terminal when looking at the town. The circular building was built in 1924 as a Winter Garden which later closed; faced with demolition, the structure was instead converted into the island's tourist information centre, and still appears to be going strong despite cuts to similar places elsewhere in Scotland. It's much more than a reception desk and leaflets on a rack, with exhibitions giving an interesting introduction to Bute's history, wildlife and tourist attractions. Obviously if you need more advice from staff, you couldn't be in a better place.
