Stuart of Bute Clan

A branch of the larger clan Stewart, the Stuarts of Bute can trace their origins back to France and the town of Dol in Brittany.

The clan would go on to split from the larger Stewart Clan and would become associated with the Isle of Bute in Argyll. It is here that the chief family would live at their seat in the modern-day town of Rothesay.

The current clan chief of the Stuarts of Bute is John Crichton-Stuart, 7th Marquess of Bute.
