Casa de Perro

Isle of Bute

My name is Ross, and before making the move to Bute, I worked as a civil electrical and mechanical engineer for the London Underground. I relocated to Bute in February 2022 and founded my business Casa de Perro, in Rothesay in April 2022.

Casa de Perro specialises in renewable technology, electrical services, solid fuel appliances, and classic vehicle electrical engineering solutions. From installing town Christmas lights to fitting solid fuel stoves, you’ll find me involved in a range of different projects.

One of the main reasons I chose to make Bute my home is its accessibility to the central belt, with the journey taking around an hour and a half. Rothesay offers all the amenities you’d expect from a small town, including a hospital, library, swimming pool, cinema, and college, all within close proximity.

The facilities in Bute, combined with easy access to Glasgow and the west coast of Scotland, were major factors in my decision to set up my business on Bute.

In addition to the beautiful landscape, one of the greatest benefits of relocating and starting Casa de Perro has been the community’s encouragement and support for small businesses. The Business Gateway Advisers have been helpful in providing guidance throughout the initial setup and ongoing running of my business.

For anyone considering relocating to Argyll and Bute, I would recommend engaging with local businesses and business people and finding a suitable location. Building connections and networking within the community is essential. Also, staying flexible with your work approach is really important and can open you up to different opportunities.

One of the highlights of my work so far has been installing the Rothesay Christmas lights.
