  • “Great accommodation and beautiful area … very bright, spacious, clean and comfortable, and wonderful location and views.”

    One comment - we missed a telephone signal and WiFi in terms of being able to check routes, opening hours, menus, weather, local tourist information and facilities … and on top of this we were very surprised that there was NO local information provided in the cottage. The guests’ information folder was very limited, focused just on Covid precautions, and not even a visitors’ comments book where we could learn from others’ recommendations of places to visit, where to eat, local walks ...

The guests’ information folder was very limited, focused just on Covid precautions, and not even a visitors’ comments book where we could learn from others’ recommendations of places to visit, where to eat, local walks etc. (Also very disappointing that booking through Sykes felt a bit like being second class citizens … our neighbours booked direct via Mount Stuart (who own the properties) and got a bountiful welcome pack of goodies, games, info etc … we just got a pint of milk that was off!). But … all this was of minor consequence - we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the cottage and the area to others.

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?
