CalMac's Rothesay ferry BUTE, the first vessel built specifically for the company outwith the United Kingdom, is seen lying alongside the end-loading ferry berth at Rothesay. Built by Remontowa at Gdansk in Poland, she joined the company in the summer of 2005, and was the first of two sisters designed for the service that links the island of Bute with the railhead at Wemyss Bay.
