  • "Kerrytonlia is a beautiful house in a fantastic location."

    The house was spacious, spotless, and felt very luxurious – one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in! It was so quiet and peaceful, and the views across the bay to the mountains of Arran are stunning. Bute is a small island, but has plenty to do if you enjoy beautiful beaches, lovely walks and lots of nature.

  • "Kerrytonlia Cottage was absolutely spotless when we arrived."

    It is a spacious, peaceful house with amazing views, home comforts and attention to detail. We recommend Kilchattan Bay, Ettrick Bay, Bute Paddleboards, Mount Stuart House and Bute open-top Bus Tours with Paul.

  • "We had a lovely stay on the beautiful Isle of Bute at Kerrytonlia cottage for our Ruby wedding anniversary."

    The cottage has stunning far reaching views across Kilchattan bay and to the Isle of Arran. The arrangements during Covid were exceptional with key safe arrangements sent in advance and we just had a quick chat with the owner across garden fence on our first afternoon who had very sweetly left a card and gift for us! We had some fantastic easy short and also some long and more challenging walks around the Isle, get a good guide and map to do some research! This part is in no way a negative as this is a new to the market property and everything is lovely, new and gorgeous - we tried to buy a cafetière to leave there as we had a bag of ground coffee with us but we didn’t find one in the local shops , also a couple of silicone spatulas will save the pans in future and thinner duvets for mid season use. We would absolutely book here again - there were only two of us this time but know our children and grandchildren would love to join us next time. We wish you all the luck for the future!

    My daughter who had only seen pictures of cows from the books had a close encounter with the cows and she has found them so adorable! We will definitely go back again next year!

  • "Beautiful outlook from the front of the house across Kilchattan Bay and beyond towards Arran - we spent many evenings sitting outside enjoying the view."

    The house was immaculate, the bedrooms spacious, the kitchen very well equipped, the bathrooms superb and brand new. Definitely exceeded expectations. We found being based down on the south of the island worked very well for getting to and from walks along the west coast, of which we did many. And Rothesay was only a 15 minute drive away.

  • "We had a great time at this cottage."

    It was really clean, well equipped and spacious. The Isle of Bute is a really nice holiday location for peace and quiet and a relaxed pace of life. Plenty of nice walks, beaches and wildlife to see. We also found that the roads to the north, going towards loch lomond and beyond were excellent so it served as a good base to explore the southern highlands too. Fantastic holiday.

  • "This was a beautiful holiday destination, everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay."

    My grandchildren enjoyed the garden, having their own bedroom and bathroom upstairs which meant we didn’t disturb them in the evening. The pub was an easy walk away for those evenings when we didn’t want to cook. Beautiful scenery everywhere and some lovely beaches for the children.

Enjoying captivating views across Kilchattan Bay on the majestic Isle of Bute, is this detached property, Kerrytonlia Cottage, located a short distance from the Victorian seaside resort of Rothesay.

This spacious accommodation enjoys a secluded location, perfect for groups of friends and families seeking a relaxing holiday, with the beach resting a stone’s throw away.

Soak up the coastal views before entering into the property’s sleek kitchen, where you can look forward to showing off your culinary skills as you make the most of the quality appliances, set in a contemporary assortment.

Here, you will find plenty of space to pack up a picnic for the next day’s adventure or a delicious evening meal, which can be enjoyed at the formal dining table, seating up to eight people, allowing everyone to gather to toast to a holiday in Scotland.

After dinner, retreat into the sitting room to get lost in a good book or spend your time in the second sitting room, where a seating arrangement is perfectly positioned for enjoying the picturesque views with a drink in hand.

Once the sun has set, look forward to catching your rest within one the well-appointed bedrooms, with three king-size doubles on the ground floor for those who do not wish to climb the stairs.

On the ground floor there are two king-size bedrooms, where one enjoys its own en-suite shower, with another double bedroom downstairs, whilst upstairs there is a twin bedroom with an en-suite shower, designed to offer a flexible arrangement to suit families with children, couples or groups of friends.

The sleek ground-floor family bathroom enjoys a walk-in shower and a separate bath, allowing you to choose how best to prepare for your day.

Immerse yourself in your surrounding further by spending time within the garden, where you four-legged friends can roam the lawn and you can soak up the sunshine.

If you don’t fancy cooking for the evening, Kingarth Hotel is 1 mile down the road from the cottage, which has an excellent restaurant and bar, as well as a carryout menu to choose from.

Alternatively, head into Rothesay where you will find a plethora of restaurants, takeaways and pubs, as well as shops for gifts and picking up any essentials.

Unravel the town’s history by visiting the castle in the centre of town, where you can look forward to exploring the dungeons, the outer walls and the fully-restored grand hall, before visiting Bude Museum.

From here, venture to Ettrick Bay, which is a safe haven for swimming or visit the closer to home beach in Kilchattan Bay for beautiful scenery.

Other attractions on the Isle include two golf courses and a range of historical landmarks, including the 19th Century mansion, Mount Stuart and Dunagoil Bay.

Kerrytonlia Cottage promises a wonderful retreat for a tranquil getaway to Scotland.

About the location


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?
