  • “A lovely conversion in a super setting.”

    We particularly appreciated the opportunities to walk freely throughout the park and gardens, exploring all that Mount Stuart offers. Truly wonderful

The property

Rothesay 4 miles.

Stunning detached cottage set within the grounds and gardens of Mount Stuart House on the beautiful Isle of Bute on the Firth of Clyde.

This traditional stone building has been lovingly refurbished and boldly decorated to create a stunningly modern interior.

Kennels has two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room.

The main open plan living accommodation comprises a fitted kitchen and dining area as well as seating area with views across the surrounding countryside.

In the centre of this spacious room is a double-sided woodburning stove which adds considerable charm to an already delightful space.

Kennels is perfect for couples, friends and families who wish to explore this wonderful island.

This holiday home is in the grounds of Mount Stuart so there's no reason why you shouldn't go and explore the house and gardens.

Open from late March to October, Mount Stuart boasts a marble hall, themes of astrology and astronomy on the vaulted ceiling in the hall and a stunning design throughout.

Outside are magnificent gardens to explore, as well as a cafe to enjoy a slice of cake and a pot of tea.

The main island town of Rothesay is where you will find castle ruins, a harbour and a selection of shops and pubs.

There's also walks and cycle routes on the island, along with birdwatching opportunities and three golf courses.

About the location

ROTHESAY, ISLE OF BUTE

Port Bannatyne 2.2 miles; Kilchattan Bay 7 miles

Although its castle dates from the 13th Century, the seaside town of Rothesay became very popular as a tourist destination in the Victorian era when many Glaswegians would go ‘doon the watter’ (down the River Clyde) and across on the ferry to Bute. Today there is much to do and see on this beautiful island which is very accessible by ferry crossing, either the 35 minute trip from Wemyss Bay or else the shorter 5 minute crossing to the north of the island from Colintraive. Visit the castle ruins in the centre of town, enjoy the stunning scenery with coastal walks or on one of the cycle routes around the island and visit historic Mount Stuart House as well as its superb gardens. Why not try one of the island’s three golf courses or chill out at Scalpsie Bay and watch the seals, with stunning views across to Arran?
