Colintraive
Argyll and Bute

A small village drawn out along the S coast of the Cowal Peninsula of Argyll and Bute, Colintraive lies on the eastern side of the Kyles of Bute opposite Rhubodach on the Isle of Bute, to which it is linked by a ferry. There is a post office and popular hotel, once a hunting lodge of the Marquess of Bute. To the east, the Village Hall (1960) occupies the site of a former smithy and mill. A Community Garden (2003) lies behind and an all-weather bowling green adjacent, dating from 1994. On the opposite side of the road, the community-run Colintraive Heritage Centre documents the history of the area. The picturesque Colintraive Church dates from 1840 and overlooks the Kyles of Bute a mile (1.6 km) southeast of the ferry terminal.
