The Isle of Bute may not have a particularly large population, weighing in at about eight thousand residents or so, but it is this sparse smattering of people that is largely responsible for the immense beauty of the Isle. Located in the world famous Firth of Clyde, the Isle of Bute is well known for its downright gorgeous appearance and wondrous beaches. It is within this slice of paradise that we find the lovely and amazing town known as Rothesay. To reach this wonderful little town you must first take a ferry from Wemyss Bay or ride in from the Glasgow Railway. It is highly worth it, though, as Rothesay is a quintessentially beautiful Scottish town that still manages to set itself apart from the rest of Scotland thanks to its unique and lovely features which include the much lauded and imposing Rothesay Castle situated in the middle of the town.



Rothesay has been inhabited in some form or another for countless centuries but it barely registered a blip on the radar of the United Kingdom until the rise of the Victorian Era. It was during this Era that England was arguably changed the most because the age emphasized the power of the aristocracy. Those days were infamous for the discrepancy between the upper and lower class and it was in this era that the rich had immense powers. It was also during this age that the wealthy citizens of areas like London and York began to shape and create bustling cities out of small villages simply by visiting and funneling their money into the local economy. The catalyst for most of this expenditure was typically health benefits of some sort. In the late 1700s Victorian era aristocrats began to visit every town that had a natural spring because many doctors at the time said it was good for vitality and longevity. This caused many large and small cities to arise because of the vast amount of income netted from the rich visitors. By the 1800s the new craze was seaside resort towns because the ocean water was now what was thought to be highly beneficial. It is here that we see Rothesay growing in size and prominence almost overnight.



Rothesay avoided the fate that befell many other seaside towns, though. While many of these towns squandered their income assuming that the good times were going to last forever, Rothesay built up an admirable and mighty shipping enterprise. When the rich people of the Victorian Era inevitably found a new craze to throw money at, many towns were left bereft of money while Rothesay was in fact stronger than ever. In fact, the traffic of steamers moving along Rothesay's pier was actually higher in those days than it is now. As such, Rothesay should serve as the perfect example of the old adage "don't put all your eggs in one basket". Rothesay admirably foresaw the changing tides of times and was like the grasshopper in the ant and grasshopper tale. It is for this reason that the town is still beautiful and still worth visiting.
