All Clan members, friends and family are welcome to attend the 2007 reunion which is to be held on the Isle of Bute, in the heart of West of Scotland’s ‘Currie Country’ to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Bute Highland Games.
ISLE OF BUTE
Just a short ferry ride from Glasgow, Bute’s principal town, Rothesay has just been voted Scotland’s best seaside resort being described as ‘splendid and peaceful’ benefiting from elegant Victorian mansions built by Glaswegian merchants which line the water’s edge. Also, palm trees and exotic plants thrive on the small island which is warmed by the Gulf Stream. The isle was thrust in to the spotlight in 2003 when fashion designer Stella McCartney chose to marry at Mount Stuart, the Victorian Gothic home of the Marquess of Bute.
THE BUTE HIGHLAND GAMES
These celebrate the rich and proud heritage of Bute and include such events as piping, highland dancing, shinty, marching bands, athletics, field sports, and tossing the caber. An event not to be missed!! See video of 2005 Games at catswhiskerstours website
