eatBute is a celebration of fresh, seasonal and locally produced food. Now an annual event in the Island's calendar, it showcases the finest produce from Bute and the surrounding areas of Argyll, as well as showing the importance of eating food that is good, clean and fair - in line with the values of ‘Slow Food'. By showcasing the Isle of Bute’s food heritage, eatBute has become one of the Scotland’s premier food events.
The event is organised annually by the Mount Stuart Trust. The Mount Stuart estate, the main venue for the event, is set within 300 acres of beautiful woodland and coastal gardens. The ancestral home of the Marquesses of Bute, this flamboyant sandstone house is widely acknowledged to be the grandest and most luxurious gothic building of the Victorian age to be found in Britain today.
