Sorry, guys - just spotted this thread. The Mount Stuart weekend is very good, spent a day there in glorious weather last year. Rally sprint was spectacular, with some idiot in a 6R4 who gave it everything. This years event seems to be bigger and better, and includes drives round the island in classic cars and supercars (as a passenger, I'm afraid) with proceeds going to charity.
Only one thing - catering was a bit disappointing, maybe best to bring your own food. I'll be going with friends and family, but only for one day (don't know which one yet).
Lots to do in and around Glasgow and the west of Scotland. The world's your lobster, really. You can even get to Edinburgh in an hour or so.
BTW, shuttle buses are run from Rothesay pier to Mount Stuart, so there's no real need for the expense of taking your car over to the island.
Have to say, Roxburgh's a long way from Bute.
