Maids of Bute

A pair of brightly painted rocks on the lower slopes of Buttock Hill, a quarter-mile (0.4 km) south southwest of Buttock Point, in the extreme north of the Isle of Bute. The Maids of Bute look out onto the Kyles of Bute and are said to represent the wives of two fisherman lost at sea, who waited so long for their men to return that they turned to stone.
