Quite delightful, where else on the island are you likely to see an Air Ministry wave meter rubbing shoulders with a Fairburn-Sykes commando knife? Do pop in and support them.

I came across this museum when I was wandering around Rothesay. This is a small local museum and has a few artefacts from recent conflicts. The staff member I spoke to was very pleasant.

The Bute Military Museum was refurbished during the winter and has a whole new look. The interior layout has been simplified and all exhibits are now in a single display area.

This little place is well worth a visit if you are in Rothesay. It is down a quiet lane (Deanhood Place). The museum has a small but very interesting collection of military memorabilia and the guy on duty was very informative.
