About Callum Houston
We live between Glasgow and Bute and spend time on the Island most weeks. The beauty of Bute is you don't need a car to visit, the train from Glasgow central station links directly with the ferry service hourly. You only have a short 100 yard stroll to the front door when you arrive on Bute.
