Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Ettrick Bay



Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Ettrick Bay on Isle of Bute, Scotland. The Bay is a relatively wide, sandy bay, situated on the west coast of the Isle of Bute. The nearest town is Rothesay, on the east coast of the island. The Rothesay and Ettrick Bay Light Railway was a narrow gauge electric tramway on the Isle of Bute. The original tramway was opened in 1882, a horse drawn 4 feet gauge tramway running from the promenade at Rothesay to Port Bannatyne. In 1901 the tramway was bought by British Electric Traction and closed on 2 March 1902 for modernisation. It was regauged to 3 ft 6 in and electrified. The tramway closed on 30 September 1936. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
