Help us restore this iconic Edwardian landmark to its former glory and splendour.
To See and Do
The station and pier continue today as the rail terminus on the Glasgow to Wemyss Bay line, from where the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry sails to Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. The island still offers many delights to the visitor as well as the resident. The splendours of Mount Stuart, home of the Marquis of Bute, and Rothesay Castle, a magnificent medieval ruin in the centre of the town, are just two examples. At Wemyss Bay, during the summer months, the Royal Scotsman (part of the Orient Express group) visits the station and stays there overnight.
The surrounding area also offers a range of activities including local cycle routes and walks, golf courses, fishing and historic sites.
