Kenny & Helen in the Isle of Bute. Part 3

Today the weather was sunny with a cool breeze (+Scottish Showers) so a stroll down the promenade and some shopping in Rothesay town was agreed.

The shops on the front are a mixture of charity shops (oor favourites), restaurants, pubs and souvenir shops. The streets behind have butchers, bakers, fruit n veg, pharmaceutical and banks etc. There are 2 C.O.O.P’s one small at the square and a larger one further back but they are all within walking distance from the main Rothesay area.

The promenade gardens are really well kept & has plenty of seating areas. It has a large putting green and a beautiful fountain.

There is also The Isle of Bute Discovery Centre (previously the Winter Gardens), which unfortunately had  just closed for renovation when we arrived.

The promenade also has very ornate lamposts.

There is also a War MemorialWar Memorial Rothesay and a monument to Alexander Bannatyne Stewart.
