Seaduction's got it, for sure. This short (~1/4 nm) ferry route operates year-round, except for a few holidays. It's rather a fun trip and you drive on/off a ramp like a military landing craft. The main attraction on the Isle of Bute IMHO is Rothesay castle (aside from the scenery, of course) and there is a serpentine street on the south side of Rothesay that reminds me of Lombard Street in San Francisco.

By the way, the Glencallum whiskey, distilled on Islay, claims it spiritual home on Glen Callum Bay on the southern tip of Bute.

Your turn, Seaduction.
