The property

Rothesay 7.9 miles.

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?
