Get “away, away, away from it all” and sail into the Isle of Bute and Rothesay.

In this film narrated by Douglas Murchie, we go on a tour of the popular tourist island, with a focus on the activities on of the holidaymakers. Look out for some iconic fashion moments.


Next, we travel to East Lothian where we learn about Bass Rock and Tantallon Castle. Then we take in the goings on in North Berwick, a popular tourist location in summer and the place where Robert Louis Stevenson wrote much of ‘Treasure Island’.


Last but not least, we travel back to the west to visit Millport and the Isle of Cumbrae for a day trip. See the familiar sights of the island including the journey across the sea to Millport Pier, famous monuments, and the main streets of Millport town.
