Argyll and Bute

Port Bannatyne is in Kames Bay, a mile or so beyond the outskirts of Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. The village has a colourful history. At the turn of the century it was a busy port of call for Clyde puffers and passenger ships. In the Second World War midget submarines exercised in the bay and nearby Loch Striven before setting off to engage in battle with the German warship, Tirpitz. Today the port is a haven for visiting yachtsmen, golfers and watersports enthusiasts.
