  • "The cottage was excellent and in a brilliant location."

    Couple of things that they need to provide. The number one requirement is to get internet/wi-fi, secondly, a built-in barbecue would be a good idea.

  • "Nether Stravannan north is set in a perfect location, close to beaches, a country inn and Mount Stuart."

    The cottage is well appointed, bright and very clean. The bedrooms are large and the bathrooms modern and clean. I most enjoyed the breathtaking view of Arran from the garden. The dogs loved being able to chase each other round the huge garden.

  • "We have stayed here several times before and love it."

    The quality of the furnishings and bedding is very good and we love the spacious areas. The views of Arran are outstanding. The property would really benefit from WiFi and proper sized single beds. Champagne glasses would also be nice! Regardless of the above recommendations, we would not hesitate in rebooking.

  • "Great location."

    Superb views. Loads of space. Good fire with plenty of logs. Didn't like the hob. Some of the kitchen gear not the best.

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?
