Bute Shinty Club is a shinty club from Rothesay, Isle of Bute, Scotland. The first team plays in the Marine Harvest Premier Division and the reserves in South Division 2. The club was champion of South Division One for 2006.


The club has been reconstituted on several occasions since its formation in 1906, but has continued in its present from since 1946. The club won the Sutherland Cup in 1972 and has won the Balliemore Cup on 3 occasions, most recently in 2006 when they defeated a Beauly team who held home advantage. 2006 was one of the club's most successful seasons of all time winning South Division One thus gaining promotion to the Premier Division, winning the Balliemore and reaching the final of the Celtic Society Cup. In 2008, after several years as a one team club, Bute restarted their second team who finished fifth in South Division Two.

The club reached the semi-finals of the Camanachd Cup for the first time on the 12th July 2008.

The club was one of the main opponents of the national league setup due to the difficulty for the team to travel to away games in places such as Cannich and Portree. (Until the establishment of Lewis Camanachd, they were the only senior team in Scotland with no fixed link to the mainland.).
