Places to stay in Rothesay
A bright and welcoming two-bedroom holiday flat, directly on the waterfront in Rothesay on the beautiful Isle of Bute. Views over the Winter Gardens to the seafront and the mountains of Argyll beyond. Two minutes from ferry, buses and supermarket.
  • Keith’s place was perfect for us, with everything we needed including warm sitting area, en-suite bathroom and good kitchen facilities. Keith even met us off the ferry when we arrived in Rothesay which was very kind. Would highly recommend if travelling through Rothesay. Basic but functional.

  • Keith's flat was clean, cosy & in a great location right in Rothesay centre with a beautiful sea view. Check in was very easy & we had a great stay. Great value too.

  • Beautiful apartment, would love to stay again. Unreal views and very good value. Such an easy journey from Glasgow city centre. Thank you Keith !

    Aimee2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • A clean, warm, cosy welcoming space that’s situated in the most convenient spot in Rothesay. Ideal for exploring the Isle of Bute and beyond.Transport links,bus and ferry , are all at your door step. Next time I might leave the car on the mainland and arrive by foot. Parking is easy though and free on road outside. A Coop supermarket,open everyday including Sunday’s is tucked away conveniently around the back of the flat and stocked everything we needed. The views of the sea and hills are so romantic and watching the ferry coming and going gives you that sense of being on an Island. We loved every minute of our stay in Keith’s flat.

    Daphne2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • For the price we paid this was a fantastic place to stay. It’s not 5 star accommodation but it is comfortable with outstanding views. Nice touches such as board games books and information booklets. Ideally situated for exploring the island

  • What an amazing flat in a great location. Rachel had loads of thoughtful extras laid out on our arrival. Croissants, jam, milk, orange juice to name a few which were really appreciated by both of us. There is also an honesty bar laid on if you fancy a drink while chilling in the living room area. The flat was spotless and very well decorated and comfortable. Central location for all the bars, restaurants, and shops and only a five min walk to the ferry. We will definitely be back and stay again and can highly recommend Rachel's flat if you are looking for a base to explore the wonders of Bute.

    Christine2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

  • Thoroughly recommend Rachel’s flat - stylish yet warm and homely and a fantastic location in Rothesay. You won’t be disappointed!

    Janet-Ann2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at Rachel's place in Bute - the place was super clean, well equipped, cozy and very tastefully decorated. It is perfect for a little getaway. :) It is conveniently located close to the ferry, local shops and the views on the sea and hills are beautiful. Rachel was very accommodating, friendly and communication with her was great - thank you so much for having us, we will surely be back!

    Jana2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This flat is absolutely lovely! It’s was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The decor and furnishings are to a very high standard. What made this extra special was all the little extra’s :- • Tea and coffee in stock • Fresh milk and Orange Juice in the fridge • croissants and jam . Plenty clean fluffy towels . Lots of toiletries in the bathroom • An honesty bar in the living room, although we did not use this it was certainly a nice touch The flat is in a great location, literally just a few minutes from the ferry. It’s close to all the local shops, bars and restaurants and it has the most amazing views of the Firth of Clyde. I contacted the Host a few times and she responded each time within minutes. A true “Super Host”! I would not hesitate to recommend this as a place to stay to friends and family and I will most certainly be back.

    Richard2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Delightful apartment in an amazingly convenient location very close to the ferry terminal. Beautifully decorated, immaculate, and with thoughtful touches such as scotch pancakes and jam for breakfast! We enjoyed cycling out to visit Mount Stuart, getting fish and chips from the West End Cafe, watching a movie at the local cinema (in the tourist info building), and a lunch at Harry Haw’s. Lovely weekend getaway, highly recommend!

    Rothesay, Scotland, United Kingdom

    Cosy one-bedroom flat on the seafront in the centre of Rothesay. A convenient base for stopovers and leisure trips, close to ferry and supermarket. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers.
  • Keiths place was a 2 min walk from the CaMac Ferry and it was clean and tidy. It was great to look out over the water when we got up in the morning and having the Co-op just behind the flat was convenient. Wifi worked just fine, in fact everything was just fine and Keith was available if we needed anything. Overall a great comfortable stay

    John2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Providing all the essentials for a comfortable stay, this quiet, clean flat comes with a bonus- a luxury view. Not only stunning, the view of the bay is soothing, transforming the flat into a peaceful retreat. I found comfort in viewing the steady departure and arrival of the ferry from Rothesay to Wemyss Bay. The flat is conveniently located for quick access to shops, local buses, and the ferry. Cross the street and you can enjoy Rothesay’s esplanade or take a few steps further for a walk along the shore at low tide. Keith was a helpful host, responding quickly to any questions I had and giving me great recommendations on what to see on the island and in Glasgow.

    Susan2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and Keith is very quick to answer any questions

    Heather2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, cosy flat, 3rd time here and will do it again. Many thanks keith.

    Sharon2019-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • I liked Keith's place so much I booked an extra month! Amazing views over to the mainland, all kinds of birdlife, can spot the occasional seal and basking shark while having your breakfast. Peace and quiet yet supermarket, takeaways, bike hire etc a minute's walk. Highly recommended.

    Russell2018-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • I was unable to stay at Keith's place due to (disastrous) unforeseen circumstances, and he was so helpful and understanding about the cancellation. I would love to try this trip again at a later time, and although I didn't get to stay there I would highly recommend Keith as a host. Thanks so much!

    Alexandra2018-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • The flat was just as advertised: a clean, well-equipped place in a great location and with a lovely seaside view. Had pretty much everything you could ask for. I really appreciated the fact that I was able to cook in a private kitchen during my stay. Keith was also a great host, responded quickly whenever I had any questions. I would highly recommend!

    Lotta2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is located in central Rothesay and is very accessible. It is close to shops, restaurants and pubs. The flat contains all the necessities and is excellent value for money. The view from the flat over Rothesay bay is very restful.

    Juliet2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Jane and Martins. The house is lovely and communication after booking and checking in was super quick and easy. The room was great and spacious and we were left tea, coffee and tea cakes. We came in and out when we wanted which was great and they left out breakfast which we could help ourselves to. Beautiful location and the views are gorgeous. Super close to the ferry terminal too! Thank you.

    Rothesay, Scotland, United Kingdom

    Bute is a hidden gem on Scotland's western coast. You could say it is a miniature Scotland (15km long and 6.5km wide). This apartment is in an ideal location (Rothesay) to best enjoy all that this magical island has to offer.
    I bought this property in June 2015 and have loved spending time here renovating the apartment to its current condition. It's a Victorian building situated directly on the seafront, next to Rothesay harbour. The apartment is on the fourth (top) floor, but believe me the reward is the world-class sea view! (however I'd advise you to consider this factor if you think the stairs might be a problem for you). The apartment itself feels warm and cosy with plenty of space for up to four adults. The apartment boasts two double bedrooms located at either end of the hallway from each other, offering maximum privacy. The living room area offers a comfortable area to relax, watch television or catch up on the day's escapades around the island. The apartment has gas central heating throughout, easily controlled via an iPhone app (iPhone supplied). The kitchen offers full cooking facilities along with a nespresso coffee machine. There is an island in the kitchen that you can sit at to keep the nominated chef in your party company! There is full WiFi available along with an HD television and Apple TV, offering Netflix and other movies available via iTunes. An airplay enabled speaker in the living room allows you to play any music you wish via your own devices or via the iPhone or iPad that are available for your convenience. The apartment is located about a five minute walk (if that) from the ferry terminal, so it is possible to arrive via the ferry as a foot passenger. If you'd rather bring your car there is plenty of free parking just in front of the apartment building.
    For a small island, the scenery found on Bute is unusually varied with soft rolling hills, craggy heather-covered moorland, spectacular beaches and ancient woodlands. All this is surrounded by the clearest waters and glorious views of Arran Mountains, the Cowal Hills and the majestic sweep of the Clyde Estuary. Bute is also on the Gulf Stream, which means it enjoys a warm microclimate. Don't be surprised at the sight of palm trees gracing the gardens on the island. Two other things that have always kept me going back to Bute is the chance to be close to nature - wildlife abounds in Bute and I have often woken up to see deer in the garden or almost bumped into one while out walking. Seals are one of my favourite animals and I never miss a chance to go to Scalpsie Bay or Ascog to look at them up close. The other thing that draws me back is the people. It's a friendly place with a strong sense of community. You don't feel the gap between locals and visitors like you do in many other holiday destinations. You might be a visitor, but you never feel like a tourist.
  • Great apartment in a great location - we will definitely be returning here in the future.

    Eric2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment has been a great place for exploring the Isle of Bute. Central location, great views and attention to detail. Excellent!

    Julie2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great view on the habour and ferries. Nice and comfortable home. Graeme is a good host. Ideal spot to explore the island and make day trips with the ferry.

    Rothesay, Isle of Bute, United Kingdom

    Cosy and stylish town centre apartment in Rothesay on the beautiful and easily accessible Isle of Bute (approx 90 mins from Glasgow International Airport). Situated opposite Rothesay’s pretty Marina with stunning views across Rothesay bay to Loch Striven. This tastefully decorated apartment is just a few minutes walk from the Ferry terminal and is well served by all of the Island's amenities.
    Spacious one double bedroom apartment with extra double sofa bed in a traditional Scottish Victorian tenement. Large, bright and well equipped kitchen diner, welcoming and authentic living room, super comfy double bedroom and clean stylish family bathroom with fantastic hot shower and bath. All accessed from the entrance hall way which has ample hanging space and storage.
    Bute is connected to the mainland via two Caledonian MacBrayne ferry routes: Wemyss Bay to Rothesay and Colintrive to Rothesay. The Island is perfect for overnight trips and long stays as well being a great starting point for a holiday exploring Scotland’s West coast Highlands and Islands. Easily accessible by car/motorbike from Scotlands central belt by heading west for Greenock on the M8 then continue west on the A78 to Wemyss Bay for the 35 minute Ferry crossing. By train you can also travel from Glasgow central (or from Paisley Gilmour Street if flying into Glasgow Int Airport) to Wemyss Bay’s grand Victorian station/ferry terminal in approx 50 mins. Bute’s main bustling little town is Rothesay which is situated in the large bay on the east of the Island. The town is well served by small independent shops, pubs, restaurants, art galleries, two supermarkets, a small leisure centre and cinema. Bute is a popular destination for quiet getaways as well as for those who enjoy outdoor activities including Cycling, Golf, Kayaking, Sailing and Walking. It is home to one of the Worlds most impressive neo-Gothic mansions Mount Stuart House which is situated a few miles out of the town and served by Bus. The West side of Bute has incredible views of the mountain ranges on the Island of Arran as well as some of Argyll’s most beautiful long deserted sandy beaches.
  • This is the perfect base to explore the Isle of Bute.. Charlotte's home is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and is a lovely cosy place to come home to. It's right in the centre of Rothesay with a great view over the harbour, it has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay...and from our experience the hosts will go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

    Charlie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice modern flat. Great location, especially handy for students on placement at the local hospital. Charlotte was very quick at responding to messages also.

It's in such a good location that we didn't need a car, across the road from the ferry and surrounded by shops and eateries. We will definitely be back if this place is available. Thank you guys!

    Emma2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment in really central location with free parking nearby. Flat is spacious, clean and warm, and was a lovely place to relax after we spent day exploring Bute. Highly recommend!

    Andrew2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We travelled to the island to spend Christmas with family who live nearby. As Charlotte knew we had children, she'd arranged for a Christmas tree to be placed in the front room which was such a lovely extra! The flat is ideally located, beautifully clean and perfect for us. Charlotte was really good at keeping in touch and made everything really easy. We'd definitely recommend it!

  • A beautiful seaside apartment with great amenities & fantastic location for exploring Bute. We have stayed here before & had a baby with us this time so Debs very kindly provided a travel cot for us. The stairs are worth it for the stunning views across the bay. Cannot recommend this apartment enough & we will definitely be staying again!

    Elaine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    This beautiful two bedroom apartment is one of a kind, known as ‘The Dome’ due to its shape. Situated on the top floor of historical building, Duncans’ Hall - the apartment enjoys stunning views from every room. Set over two levels, the Dome offers a spacious open plan living area and a modern clean kitchen on the top floor, with two double bedrooms on the lower level. This is a perfect getaway apartment - 5 mins walk from the ferry, castle, art galleries, restaurants, pubs and shops.
    The decor is modern and stylish with a nautical theme. The modern kitchen is fully contained, and offers all the mod cons to make you feel at home. The main bedroom has an ensuite shower/sink, in addition to the main bathroom, with plenty of hot water through a combi-boiler. A playstation (PS3) and second TV is provided for extra entertainment and a Clavinova piano if you wish to have a tinker:) The open living lounge/kitchen area has two 4 seater sofas for extra comfort and relaxation. there is free Wifi, Now TV and a Bluetooth radio for quiet evenings in! Please note that there are stairs to the apartment and unfortunately ’The Dome’ is not suitable for those with mobility issues.
    Having lived here for two years, I cannot recommend Rothesay more highly as a place for relaxation, exploration and socialising. There are some great restaurants, pubs and cafes, as well as the Glenburn - a stunning hotel which hosts regular events - to simply relax and watch the world go by - and Helmi's Bakery which serves amazing coffee and freshly baked cakes! There are many social events through the Summer, including live music at the Scottish Honky Tonk (or Skonk as it is lovingly known:) and Musiker too - a vegetarian cafe with great food. There are art exhibitions on every month at the Bute Gallery, and children's events and activities galore! For sight-seeing, Mount Stuart - a beautiful Neo-Gothic Country House - is a must-see, with its stunning interiors, artefacts and many gardens. St Blane's - for those who have an interest in history - is a beautiful walk and an incredibly peaceful place with a chapel and graveyard dating back to the Viking era. Then there are the beaches ...so many beaches! Ettrick Bay is the most popular with its great little cafe and long walk up to the Bird Hide; Scalpsie Bay is the sunbathing location of our many seals, with Kilchattan Bay, and St Ninians bay both beautiful places with great walks into the countryside if one chooses. There are also lots of wonderful walking routes - one right behind the apartment, which is a woodland walk that will take you past farms, horses and with a reward at the top which shows the whole of the surrounding waters out to Dunoon. Lastly, there is Rothesay Castle, along with the museum and the Discovery Centre, and an ever-growing town centre with lots of unique shops and boutiques. For all that it is a small island, the Isle of Bute offers so much for every age, interest and ability. I hope you’ll come and enjoy this little island as much as I do!
  • We had a great stay here. It was spacious and stylish with lovely views and a superb location. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

    Courtney2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely stay on Bute, fantastic apartment in an ideal location. Amazing views and everything you need for a weekend away. Communication with Susan was great and she was quick to sort any queries we had. We would definitely stay here again next time we visit!

    Sam2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very comfortable and stylish flat in the heart of Rothesay. Its up four flights of stairs but that means it s got a terrific view over the harbour. There are a lot of useful distractions in the flat , and being on two levels a lot of private space if needed. Very good info on area and communication with host was easy and helpful.

    Ewan2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Susan's place is comfortable and cozy with an amazing view of the harbor and the sunsets. Great location within walking distance to everything in Rothesay. Just make note of the stairs as they do keep you in shape!

  • Such a great space. Great views and great location. Really enjoyed our stay here and will look to book again when we are back in Bute.

    Rothesay, Scotland, United Kingdom

    Perfect for solo travellers to the Isle of Bute, this comfortable single room is 2 minutes’ walk from the town and the ferry terminal. This 2nd floor room is comfortable and cosy offering a peaceful retreat for the traveller, whether walking, working or visiting. Feel free to make your own meals in our fully equipped breakfasting kitchen with free tea and coffee on tap, or relax in our large lounge with TV, games, books and plenty of seating and dining areas.
    The hostel itself is an old Victorian house with period features, high ceilings and the kind of charm that you only find with properties of this era:) The TV is located in the lounge - the main shared area where many solo travellers have found new friends (We seem to have more than our fair share of warm and friendly people staying here). If you are out in the evening, the door is always open;there is no curfew, but I do ask guests to respect the peace and wellbeing of others staying. We also have a buggy/bike store, barbecue area and free tea/coffee.
    Rothesay offers a great variety of pubs, and events - and we are soon to see the opening opening of the Pavilion in April which will offer everything from music events and dining experiences to exhibitions and craft fairs. There is a little nightclub in the town centre for those who like a bit of a boogie (yes, I did say that) as well as a museum and of course, our wonderful discovery centre which houses a permanent exhibition on Rothesay’s history as well as a cute little cinema showing the latest films. Best of all though, we have an abundance of beautiful woodland walks - and of course, plenty of great beaches! Ettrick Bay is a favourite, with a superb tearoom and playpark right on beach; Scalpsie Bay is a must if you enjoy rugged seaside walks, and Kilchattan Bay offers many little rock pools for little people to hunt for sealife. Along Kerry Croy way you will often see seals basking on the rocks and the walk around to the lighthouse at Kilchattan is a stunning walk with views of neighbouring islands ...and the odd submarine!

    The flat is situated across the road from the beach (about 30 secs walk) We are on the edge of the town, about 2 mins walk from the main supermarket and about 3 mins walk from the main shopping street of the town. There is free parking at the back of the building and free parking at the front too. We are situated about 7/8 minutes walk from the main ferry pier and you can watch the ferry coming in from the front windows.

    The flat is bright, homely, warm and comfortable. There is a fully modern Kitchen with all appliances, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven & hob, microwave, kettle and toaster etc. There is Wifi in the flat. There is a 5 piece modern bathroom with bidet. All towels and bed linen are provided plus beach towels and buckets & spades for the kids, in the bathroom there are shampoos and shower gels etc and a first aid box.

The flat is very quiet and peaceful and hopefully you will enjoy the complementary bottle of wine that is provided for you to sit at the end of the day and enjoy the view !! There ia a valid Safety Gas Certificate, Carbonmioxide detector and a wired in Smoke detector.
    The ferry to Rothesay leaves from Wemyss bay more of less every 45mins and takes about 30mins to get there. The island is beautiful and for anyone not used to living by the sea, our stunning sunrises and sunsets are wonderful ! There are lots of places to explore on the island with beautiful beaches, Ettrick Bay (where there is a lovely home baking tea room and small swing park), also Scalpsie Bay which is almost deserted ! There are also golf courses with lovely views and other swing parks for the kids. Rothesay is a 100 seater cinema with all the latest films on realise. You can also visit our Bute Brewery, with local brews for tasting !! There is fishing from the pier (especially in the mackerel season!) and also at Loch Fad. Mount Stuart House is also a must to visit owned by Lord Bute. Most pubs on the island have entertainment. For best info, just (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Rothesay, Isle of Bute !
  • Everything about this flat was wonderful, Angela is an amazing host who goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is extra special, communication was wonderful and all the extra touches made it extra special. A lovely flat in a fabulous location will definitely be back

    Gillian2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect home from home during our winter break. The location is perfect being 5 minutes walk from most of the shops, cafes and pubs. Angela was a great host, providing helpful advice on the ferries and always being available if needed. Really appreciated arriving to fresh milk for tea and snacks after a long journey. The flat has everything needed for a relaxing and cosy get away, with an amazing view of the seaside and lots of helpful tourist information on hand. We would highly recommend.

    Carolyn2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Angela is a super host. The flat is lovely and clean. Great location. Lovely sea views from the living room. Many nice touches around the flat. Great communication from start to finish. Second time staying in the flat. Highly recommended.

    Martin2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A great find of a flat - the location is brilliant and the flat is cosy and really well equipped. We had a lovey time with our three children and two dogs and hope to return.

    Spacious, recently decorated and is in the heart of Rothesay Town. It's a ground floor flat with back and front door. There is disabled parking bays right outside front door and street parking. The local co-op is right on the door step followed by bars restaurants and shops just metres away. Bus stop, taxi rank and Rothesay pier is only several minuets away as well as the prom just along the street. I have added my own personal touch to make it as homely and comfortable as I can .
    My place is fresh and modern. From fresh flowers to artificial ones, I believe every detail counts.
    It's busy during day as its in the centre of town but it does quieten down after tea time.
  • Janine’s place was great, central and close to amenities. Clean, tidy and had everything we needed.

    Mikell2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Janine’s home is amazing, very central, the flat is huge, front and back door, lovely wee garden and the beds are really comfortable. Janine had left fresh milk, eggs and bread for us, the flat is well equipped, clean and comfy.

    Fizz2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful place for 2-4 people to stay when visiting Rothesay or any part of Bute. Janine the host is easy to deal with and the accommodation was first rate, immaculately clean, well placed and well presented. Lots of nice touches from flowers in room to milk in the fridge. We travelled with friend who has restricted mobility and this property was perfect, easy access and designated disabled parking. Would recommend anybody to stay here.

    Lovely setting on outskirts of Rothesay but within easy walking distance to town, beach and ferry. Backs onto Skeoch woods. Private back garden and parking at front. Property is high so not suitable for disability access. Wonderful panaramic views of a Rothesay Bay.
    Bedroom, kitchen, bathroom (shower), living room. Private rear garden with access to Skeoch woods. Parking at front of property
    Peaceful area with amazing views
  • Perfect location, great views!

    Hannah2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lila’s apartment is at the ‘dormer level’ of a goodly sized residence now converted to apartments. It has a wonderful view of Rothesay and the bay...which means there’s a bit of a climb to get to the apartment. I would classify the apartment as cozy, but with a surprisingly large kitchen/dining area. The kitchen appears to be well-applianced, but having made use only of the frig and dining area, I can’t comment from personal experience. The small-ish bedroom has the dormer, and the living room has a bay window with built-in seating for watching the activity on the bay to your heart’s content. Overall, the interior projects a cheerful feel with a strong sense of pride of ownership. I very much enjoyed the apartment. I communicated with Lila entirely via email. There were no glitches. I always had the feeling that she was committed to ensuring that I had a pleasant experience in her apartment.

    Wilson Todd2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay - very clean and everything you would want. Lila has put a lot of thought in ensuring our stay was hassle free. The extra tourist information provided in the property gave us a lot of ideas of things to do - I especially appreciated the OS map of the area! Thanks Lila and we may be back soon!!

    Julie2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lila's flat by far exceeded our, already quite high, expectations. The flat is beautiful, with amazing views and manages to be both cosy and spacious. It proved a lovely base for our exploration of an equally lovely island - neither of us wanted to leave!

    Elizabeth2018-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lila was such a helpful and responsive host from initial booking enquiry right through to our departure. The flat was spotlessly clean and cosy. It is 10 minutes walk from the centre of Rothesay so it was lovely and peaceful with a wood at the back of the garden. We hope to return later in the year. If you’re eating in the sausages from McQueen’s butchers are amazing. Bute brewery is also worth a visit, for the beer and pizzas.

    Josephine2018-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic views from this eyrie! Bute is laid out for you and we loved just sitting in the window seat watching the world. Peaceful Bute we loved it ! Great flat, everything you need and lots of little touches which are always welcome. We will return. Lovely communications from Lila added to the experience. We met lovely people there too. Friendly and nothing was too much bother. Brilliant!

    Stella2017-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great little flat. Kitchen pretty well equipped for self-catering, and we appreciated the things like tea, coffee, salt, pepper, shampoo and other consumables provided. Be prepared for the steep climb from street level and then two flights of steps. The view from the flat is terrific.

    Andrew2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lila's apartment is wonderful...it is on the top floor of a beautiful old house on the top of a small hill next to a wood. The view from the living room is inspired. It looks over Rothesay and the bay and mainland Scotland. To see this everyday was a total joy! Me, and my wife loved this apartment, felt at home and very cosy, and were sad to leave. It was our special little Bute nest for the week : )

  • When entering was very welcoming spacious all in all we would recommend. A truly great place to stay

    Carl2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderfully clean and relaxing flat located nearby just about everything in Rothesay. We thoroughly enjoyed Janice's warm hospitality and the welcoming stash of provisions she provided for us. ;o) The flat is located on the first floor of the building (read as stairs) and therefore may not be for everyone. If that's no issue, you will really enjoy the space. The kitchen has everything you need to be self-sufficient during your stay and the family room is cozy and relaxing. Even our visitors commented on the flat! We'll be looking out for #1 Union Street when we return to visit again!

    Brian2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • It’s in a great location just up from the castle and close to the town. The street is quiet with adequate parking. The flat itself is so welcoming with individual touches( we were there at new year and there were Christmas lights up) If your going to Rothesay this is the place to stay,

    Karen2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely flat and perfect for what we were looking for! Choice of cereals for breakfast was a lovely touch , as was the small Christmas tree and lights! Will definitely be staying again!

    Alannah2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Janice’s place, it was sparkling clean and comfortable. It has a well-equipped kitchen, a cosy living room and the stylish bedroom has a comfy bed. Janice has provided everything guests will need for their stay, tourist brochures and recommendations about the best places to eat and drink and visitors attractions. The flat is near the town centre and Janice has thought of everything to make sure guests have an enjoyable stay. Being a superhost myself I knew the standard would be high and I was not disappointed.

    Margaret2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely flat near to the castle where right from arrival we felt welcome. Flat is very clean, bed is comfy, shower is powerful what more could you ask for? Lots of nice touches - milk, fruit, cereal etc , board games, dvds and lots of suggestions for places to go. Would return again in a second

    Karen2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had a fab couple of days. Particularly appreciated the little touches like milk in the fridge and hand written notes with recommended places to visit etc. Would definitely stay again. 😊

  • Catrina's place is in a great location for exploring the island and very easy to find from the ferry. It is very nicely decorated with cosy lounge and very comfortable bed. Catrina has made a great effort to add lots of thoughtful touches such as nice teas and coffees, and bits and pieces from the local area. Catrina's hospitality made the stay extra special and convenient. I would thoroughly recommend.

    Oliver2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great few days here at Catrina’s. The flat is so cute and warm. Absolutely loved all the little touches she had dotted around the place. Glad we managed to catch a moment of the cat’s time before she went back to roaming around the garden. Kitchen great for cooking. Very best wishes Catrina, it was wonderful.

    Paul2019-12-29T00:00:00Z

    Gina2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful, well equipped home with lots of thoughtful extras. Hosts very helpful and know the island in great detail. Very comfortable bed and great view from the bedroom over the sea. A very comfortable place to stay, with easy access to Rothesay and all transport.

  • Catrina’s place is in the perfect location for a visit to Rothesay as has gorgeous views and it’s a lovely walk into town! The flat is a great space with absolute everything you need for a short break, it is sparkly clean and has the comfiest bed ever - we didn’t want to leave!! We visited with our 14 week baby boy and there was lots of room in the bedroom for his travel cot and also in the living area for his play mat. Catrina was a great host, very helpful and friendly! Would 100% recommend staying at Catrinas place, we will definitely return! Thank you Catrina!

    Leeann2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Catrina’s apartment is very comfortable for two people and a dog, with a very comfy bed and lovely fluffy towels. Catrina provided a wealth of information about Bute, places to visit, walks etc. It was our first visit to Bute but definitely won’t be our last. We walked the first stage of the West Island Way, which is just over 5 miles, with a mix of coastal and hill walking and great views; would definitely recommend. Also good walks on the doorstep up to Canada Hill providing great views of Rothesay and beyond. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

The cottage is spacious, spotless and very comfortable and would definitely recommend! Sheena the host was very easy to communicate with, helpful and quick to respond. Will 100% be back in the future.

    Lee2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time as a family staying at this lovely spacious bungalow. It was spotless clean. It was great to be able to take the dog for a walk along the sea front in the morning. The bungalow was just a short journey into the centre. I would highly recommend it and would stay again.

    K Alice2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sheena’s house was very warm and welcoming. We love the island life and the friendliness of the people on the island. I will definitely be booking up again in the very near future.

    Peter2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • As with the majority of the property's reviews, the photos don’t do it justice. Sheena’s bungalow is very spacious but still cosy and sparkling clean. With less than a 10 minute drive from the ferry terminal at Rothesay, the route takes you round the shore giving you a chance to take in the lovely views. We had a 3 year old and an 18 month old with us and Sheena had kindly set up a travel cot for us and much to the delight of the kids, she had candy canes and chocolate decorations I. Her Christmas tree. And after the overindulgence of the festive period, us adults were delighted to find a lovely fruit basket on our arrival. We were also happy to find that Ettrick Bay was just over a 5 minute drive away from us- a huge sandy beach that the kids spent an hour running around with a very reasonably priced tearoom. Additionally, the local leisure centre was a short drive away and we spent an hour there having a swim which tired the kids out meaning we could enjoy a drive round this beautiful island. We would recommend Harry Haws and Kingarth Hotel for food- service was really great. All in all a great recharge for us going into the New Year and we’ll definitely be rebooking at some point this year.

    Linda2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous location- views are amazing - lovely friendly local people - the bungalow is perfect - equipped with everything you could possibly need - spotlessly clean - could not recommend this place high enough - just excellent. Sheena ,the host, was fantastic - went that extra mile to make us all welcome - Isa ( my wee cat ) had a ball too ! 💕

  • What a great find! Oonagh was the perfect host, offering great communication, hospitality, stylish, clean and comfortable accommodation. All the little touches made such a difference to us, especially having 2 grandchildren. Situated on Rothesay seafront next to children's corner, we were handy for everything Rothesay has to offer. As we love coming to Bute to escape the humdrum of the mainland, we will certainly be coming back to Oonaghs place. Couldn't have wished for any better. Thank you x

Scotland's only round 13th century castle is literally 100 yards away from your front door, as are lots of local shops and services. The town sits on the edge of the Highland Boundary Fault line, meaning you are sleeping both in the Highlands and the Lowlands, this contrast in geology making up both sides of the Island is part of the charm and diversity of the landscapes you can visit and experience within minutes from your door step.
  • Great big flat in good central location, has everything you need and more for a big family or gathering.

  • Great living space lots of room for large family gatherings, as mine was. Everything was clean. Communication was excellent. Some rooms were a bit tired but as I said it was clean. The noise from the Islander pub karaoke on Friday went on until 1 am which was awful. The other nights there was less noise. Parking was fine just a little further up the street.

    The apartment is set over two floors. Spacious rooms all with lovely views of Rothesay and over the Clyde to the Scottish mainland. Located in a quite road on the edge of town but still within ten mins walking of Rothesay centre. Commanding views over Bute and the mainland. Pleasant, spacious comfortable flat. Perfect for exploring Argyll and the highlands. Bute is a beautiful island , with several lovely beaches, a stunningly wild island , perfect to explore on foot, by car , bicycle or bus.
    The garden is ok to use. Please clear up after your dog if you’ve brought one 😊. If you smoke. Not in house please. Garden is good
  • I had a nice (one month) stay in Susan's flat. There is plenty of space with two bedrooms and bathrooms. The living room has lovely views across the town and the bay. The beds are comfortable and it's a nice quiet location. The hill is a bit steep and some people may prefer to drive up and down, but it's just 10 minutes walk into town and the ferry, and the Coop. Mobile reception isn't bad but can be a bit unreliable on some networks, something to keep in mind since there is no wifi. I used the wonderful library when I needed to get any extensive work done. Bring a coffee maker if you need one. Overall a good place to stay at a decent price. Susan is very responsive and helpful when I had questions, and Bute is just wonderful. Check out the Musicker cafe and Helmi's! :)

    Mike2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment, 5 mins walk to centre of town and amazing views from both the lounge and upstairs bedroom. Very cosy.

  • We had a lovely stay here in Rothesay. The accommodation was perfect for our needs with local information and basics in the cupboards for us to use. The views of the bay are stunning and the living room is a beautiful place to sit on an evening and watch the world go by. Short walk to co-op and town centre.

    Becky2019-07-26T00:00:00Z

  • A fantastic location in Rothesay and a great flat which was ideal for our needs. Morag was so helpful from start to finish and very flexible to our needs. Looking forward to a slightly longer visit next time to remind us if all that Bute has to offer.

    William2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at St John's Place for two nights. 4 people stayed at the propery 2 adults and 2 under five year olds. The property owner Morag was lovely and briefly showed us the property on arrival. The location of the property is ideal. It is situated in Rothesay which is the primary town on Bute. It is just a cross the road from the beach. The property is well maintained and clean. It is as described and the photos are accurate. There was plenty of room, I felt, for 2 adults and 2 children. The property has night storage heaters and was cosy warm through our stay. I really enjoyed our stay and I can safely say I would recommend this property without hesitation.

    Martin2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

  • A very centrally located property which is very cosy & very peaceful! It has all the comforts of home, plus! Didn't use the record player or records or the large collection of books - but probably would have if we'd had a longer stay. There was also plenty of info on what was going on locally! Always had hot showers, had comfortable beds, plenty towels and great heating! We really enjoyed our stay here & will definitely be back.

    Recently redecorated top-floor flat in Victorian tenement in the tiny seaside village of Port Bannatyne on the Isle of Bute. Easily accessible from Edinburgh or Glasgow. Sleeps up to 4 (double bedroom and a very comfortable double sofa bed). Wifi.
  • There are 50+ steps to Sam’s flat but well worth the climb to stay in this cosy wee gem. It’s delightfully furnished and everything needful is present. It is quiet. The views from the sitting room are glorious and I even watched a peacock as I washed up in the kitchen. We had bikes and it was an easy 15min seafront ride into Rothesay (but we got soaked on the way back!). This is a great place to stay.

    Margaret2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A cosy flat with a wonderful sea view.

    Kate2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately the unusual weather conditions prevented us getting the ferry to the island for our short trip, but we can't commend Sam enough for being extremely helpful and patient communicating with us to sort things out. We will be back one day!

    Alex2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sam's lovely top floor apartment had spectacular views across the bay and over to the mountains, It was quiet and was a wonderful place to come back to after a day exploring Bute. The heating controls were very easy to use and so responsive. Very cosy.

  • Lovely flat, quiet location, comfy bed, perfect position for exploring the island, great and quick communications from Sam. This was my first airbnb experience so thanks Sam for making it a good one.

    Thuzar2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely space, and the perfect location for a nice quiet getaway to the island. The accommodation is charming, with excellent sea views - & is also nice and quiet. Besides all the natural beauty and tranquility, there are also nearby memorials to naval X-Craft crews, and to Birdie Bowers from Scott's Antarctic team. Definitely recommended!

  • Patricia's flat is much larger than expected and in a fabulous location very close to town but also far enough away for some peace and quiet (not that it's ever loud!). The sea views were a bonus and it is also very close to some forested area which is great. The beds were very comfy, the rooms sparkling clean and we felt just at home! Thank you, will book again in the future and recommend to anyone!

    Liz2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • the property is in a fantastic location, is well presented and fully equipped, indeed equipped beyond expectations. Plenty big enough for two couples. When we arrived the property was spotlessly clean, and lots of useful information provided about local area, would highly recommend, and if returning to Rothesay will look to stay at this property again.

    Robert2019-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect sized flat for us (4 adults and a baby), the rooms were larger than I think the photos show which was great. It’s in a good location within easy walking distance along the waterfront to the shops and restaurants. The flat was very clean and all the bedding and kitchen supplies were provided. Overall I would recommend it and recommend a holiday on Bute.

It was beautifully furnished with lovely attention to detail and certainly has stunning views looking out over the bay. Very easy walk down to the Co-op for all your shopping essentials by a back road and great parking availability. Can't recommend it highly enough if you fancy your own privacy, want the ability to cook and have easy access to the town and all the tourist destinations on the island. Katrina is an excellent host and communicates regularly if you have any questions.

Our Island has Rothesay Castle, Mount Stewart House,Golf clubs, Sea views, beaches and many more things broadly in the following categories: History/Archaeology Mount Stuart House, Brandanii Archaelogy, Bute Museum, Rothesay Castle, St Blane’s Chapel Festivals & Arts ButeFest 2017, Isle of Bute Artists Collective, Bute Highland Games, Mount Stuart Visual Arts Programme, Baird of Bute Festival of Flight, Bute Cycle Festival, Rothesay Horticultural Society Show

  • This is a nice little hotel that is good value for money. The front rooms have beautiful views of Rothesay and the sea and there are two perfectly positioned tables out the front for a drink looking over the sea when the suns out. The breakfast is very filling and it’s in walking distance from the ferry. We used it as a base for two nights during our walking of the West Island way which worked out very well for us.

    No cleaning fees or additional person costs! This beautiful second (top) floor flat in the quiet village of Ardbeg, was stylishly remodeled in the 70s to create a unique apartment incorporating a sunken lounge and raised dining area with stunning panoramic views of the Clyde estuary.
    We love our apartment in the quiet village Ardbeg. It has a stunning sea view and overlooks gardens and a bowling green. The stroll to the waterfront takes less than 2 minutes. Inside: This is a top (second) floor apartment. There are 2 internal steps within the flat itself and a raised platform at the bay window. While this adds to the uniqueness of the flat, it could be inconvenient for parents with toddlers. The sunken lounge area has a double sofa bed, 22" television, dvd player, hi-fi equipment and a digital radio. There is a large selection of movies and music, including a beloved vinyl collection. The kitchen has an electric cooker, fridge and an ample selection of pots, pans, cutlery and crockery. There are two single beds (that can be put together with a comfortable mattress topper) a wardrobe and small chest of drawers in the freshly decorated bedroom.
    The quiet village of Ardbeg is 1.5 miles from Rothesay Pier from where you can catch one of the regular buses. In dry weather, we sometimes just enjoy the beautiful walk along the prom from the ferry to the flat. For those coming from Colintraive it's 6.5 miles from Rhubodach to Ardbeg. Ardbeg itself is small but there is a corner shop and a post office where you can find all your basics. The post office owner sells newspapers and occasionally fresh eggs from his hens. If you fancy a drink, we would recommend a walk along the front to nearby Port Bannatyne. The Port Inn has a great beer garden. In the main town, Rothesay, you can find everything you need there are numerous great independent shops including a fishmonger and a couple of great butchers. There's also a large Co-op supermarket. Places to eat: Rothesay has many restaurants and cafes. Be warned, a good cup of coffee can be hard to find, but Musiker, opposite the castle is recommended. We also recommend a trip to the recently opened Bute Brew Co who make a fine selection of craft ales.
  • We had a really lovely stay at Keith and Sally's flat in ardbeg, Bute. Beautiful scenery and area, easy to access, the flat is cosy, stylish and really well equipped. Really appreciated the extra little touches and loved the top floor view over the coast! Would highly recommend!

  • Before even arriving, Keith had made contact, shared arrival details and set the place up for us ready for Christmas, with a welcoming bottle of wine! The flat is exactly as described. It's a great space with a retro feel. There was adequate space for three of us and a decent quantity of cooking equipment. The views are great - the seafront is only a few metres from the window! It's only a short drive from the ferry port and a central location for exploring the island. Keith's flat really is a 'bute'!

    Matthew2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location to get to and to travel around the island ! Very cosy, comfortable and stylish flat even - particularly important if you’d rather stay in and play scrabble on a very very rainy day !! Views from the flat can’t be summed up in a picture - always changing !

    Zoe2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great space with fabulous touches. Beautiful views and the LPs...!

    Bex2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Keith and Sally’s place is really something special. We had a wonderful weekend staying at their place in ardbeg as a surprise birthday present for my partners 30th. The place is beautiful, clean and homely, and Keith and sally are excellent hosts, providing good communication and excellent recommendations.

    Deena2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most amazing relaxing stay in Keith's flat. He met us at the flat on arrival had a quick coffee and chat with us and showed us around the space. His communication then and before we arrived was fantastic. Don't hesitate to stay here! The beach is a five minute walk and we got the bus to other beautiful beaches on the island. Rothesay is an easy walk along the water. The flat itself is so cosy and so cared for. We loved sitting enjoying the view, drinking coffee and listening to the record collection. Our little dog was very happy too! We will definitely be returning!

    Beth2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Keith’s flat in Bute. Location was great! Everything was exactly as the photos show, well equipped kitchen - we cooked one night and had everything we needed! We used their bikes and cycled to Ettrick Bay and ate at the tearoom. We also loved being able to play records on the record player, and sit by the window watching the boats on the sea! Would highly recommend! Thanks Keith!

    Inga2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • A stylish, comfortable flat with a great view. Near to the shore. Keith is a very good host too.

    "Home away from Home" Beautifully furnished cosy little Glamping Container by the Sea at Scalpsie Bay on the Isle of Bute.
    Surrounded by nature your neighbours will be the birds and the bees as well as the seals sunbathing on their rocky perches at Scalpsie Bay. Of course other people may visit the beach aswell :)
  • Great place and location. Cozy, simple and quiet. Peaceful.

    Joe2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • You'll struggle to find a more beautiful spot on Bute to relax and enjoy being close to nature. Perfect for a few days away.

    Vanessa2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is a little piece of heaven in the most beautiful setting. Strongly recommend the southern circular walk.

    Tabitha2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa's cabin is so beautiful and cosy, the fire started easily and had the whole space toasty very quickly. Because it was winter there wasnt much power coming from the solar panels, but we had enough light to sit and read while drinking wine looking out at the moon shining over the sea. A beautiful weekend. The cabin in easy to find down the path to Scalpsie Bay

    Bertie2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place, cozy, perfect location. If you want peace and relaxation with the option of taking a stroll in beautiful nature, this is the place. We loved it.

    Rebecca2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • My experience here was nothing short of incredible! The cabin looks out onto the ocean, and there’s a breathtaking mountain island in the distance. A warm fire in the stove behind me provided the perfect setting to do some journaling, drawing and reflecting. The bed and bedding were very comfortable, and the skylight above the bed convinced me that I want a skylight in my own home. House was perfectly and thoughtfully furnished, and Lisa was so friendly and helpful. I arrived after it was dark, and Lisa made sure the arrival was seamless. The hikes along the beach were invigorating, and it was fun to watch planes try and land at the airstrip when there were highs winds. I highly recommend staying here!

    John2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa’s pod is in an idyllic setting on Scalpsie beach. Five min walk from where you leave your car. Take wellies! Amazing views across to Arran from pod. Everything was provided to enable us to self cater although we can highly recommend Kingarth Hotel for food and Ettrick cafe for cake! Although small, we never felt like we were cramped and we could have happily spent longer there. Thank you very much Lisa!

    Claire2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Having grown up in the island I knew all about its natural beauty but even I was blown away by the location of Lisa’s Shepard’s Hut. Waking up to a view across Scalpsie Bay to the mountains of Arran was truly breathtaking. The Hut itself was incredible. All you could want when looking to escape the hectic lifestyle on the mainland. Huge comfy bed, great wee wood burner, and all the amenities you’d want for a real getaway. Lisa and Ian were great at making us feel welcome and giving us excellent recommendations of what to do and where to go on the island. Thank you!! Next time I will bring my wetsuit so I can go wild swimming in this stunning location.

    Paul2019-07-06T00:00:00Z

    Margaret2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • A fascinating building built by the Victorians as an aquarium and later turned into a swimming pool before being converted to apartments. The apartment is very spacious with superb views across the harbour. 10 minute walking distance to Rothesay, ferry and shops. Easy to park in front of the building.

    Luke2018-06-26T00:00:00Z

    Fabulous ground floor apartment, super unrestricted view over Rothesay Bay, 5 minutes walk from Rothesay Town Centre. Has all you need for incomparable break away to lovely Island of Bute.
    Private back garden which is a total sun trap ! Raised gravel sitting area to the front, perfect for sitting and relaxing watching the world going by.
    very quiet with friendly neighbours
  • Just returned from a short break at 7a Argyle Place, a truly lovely holiday flat, only a few minutes walk from Rothesay Town Centre. The whole flat was spotlessly clean with a well equipped kitchen including a washing machine and a lovely bathroom, outdoor seating at the front gave stunning views across the bay and the enclosed rear garden was private with plenty seating and a table, a proper little sun trap. We were grateful for the large flat screen tv and dvd player when the weather to a turn for the worse yesterday. Cant recommend this place highly enough and plan to return soon

    Linda2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous wee flat photos don't do it justice. Very spacious and great to walk into town centre and plenty good walks for dogs. We had a lovely relaxing break and will definately go back, highly recommended.

    Monika2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Good location and nice flat,very spacious and cosy, absolutely lovely bathroom. Thank you

    Monika2019-04-07T00:00:00Z

    Stuart2018-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay close to beach and great dog walks in the woods. Good selection of dvds for poorer weather.

    Diane2018-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely flat, really well-placed right on the seafront, only about 5 mins walk from the ferry terminal. It has everything you need and the garden space is lovely. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, there's good Wi-Fi and it's handy having two bathrooms - one with a lovely big bath. Overall, a great place for a short break, and I don't think the photos do it full justice! Patricia was very quick and helpful responding to any queries we had before and during our stay - The only suggestion I had was a guest info pack would be helpful, as the heating was a bit tricky to find / work out at first! I would highly recommend this flat to anyone coming to Rothesay!

    Gillian2018-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is spacious and bright. It has a nice back garden, perfect for a sunny day. It is well equipped and clean. The two toilets are very useful if the number of guests is 3 or 4. It is located very close to the town centre and ferry terminal. Overall it is perfect for a short visit in Bute.

    Rothesay, Scotland, United Kingdom

    Tùr Cruinn is located moments away from the ferry port. Cross Guildford Square with the local Co-op and head up High Street. Passing the Musicker Cafe and Harry Haw's restaurant on your left with Rothesay Castle to your right turn left by the former Town Hall and Sheriff Court into Castle Street. Continue past the Galatea Bar on your right and across from Bute's own Island Radio Station is our holiday retreat 20 Castle Street. Check-in and out is via lock box & we are readily contactable.
    Once off the street walk down the short communal hall and climb the round tower stone staircase to the first floor. The lock box is at the top of the stairs. Continue through the unlocked communal door and flat 1/2 is on the right. On entering you'll find yourself in a light, welcoming airy open plan living space with a large comfy sofa and arm chair and the log burner (wood and fuel can be bought from the Co-op for your stay). With a well equipped kitchen comprising, induction hob and oven, micro wave, toaster, kettle, cafetiere, fridge with freezer compartment and washing machine you'll be able to prepare and cook whatever you fancy. Off the hall to the rear is a snug double bedroom with capacious double wardrobe, two bedside cabinets for additional storage and adjacent to this the contemporary bathroom comprises a toilet, basin and walk in shower. Towels are provided. Free parking is available on the street opposite the flat. There is also a small area for off road parking on the corner of Castle Street and Watergate. On checking - out please leave the flat in the condition you found it, thank you.
    We are in the centre of town for shopping, cafes and restaurants. The promenade with wonderful views, including the occasional seal, is close by. Visit the Visit Scotland iCentre Tourist Information Centre and Discovery Cinema. The promenade also has the Rothesay Putting Green by the fountain. Or you can play Pétanque at Piste in the Park, Port Bannantyne, hire the boules from the local post office or the Anchor Tavern. We really enjoy spending time in Cafe Musicker which has great coffee and where you can buy a guitar too. Helmi's Patisserie is a charming spot with its arabic menu and views of the harbour. Go for the breakfast or delicious cakes. Both cafes have a range for vegetarian and vegans and CaleDona Cafe and Bistro in Port Bannatyne has a great mix of French and English cuisine. And of course just walking along the sea front in either direction is an adventure in itself. There are regular bus services to all the small villages and bays from the Guildford Square, many taxis and a rental bike service at the Bike Shed on Montague St.
  • This flat is ideally situated for the local restaurants and pubs. The flat is lovely decorated and has everything you need for a relaxing break

    Noyon2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay here. Great location and easy to access buses, walks and the ferry terminal. We loved having nice walks around the island and coming back to a nice cosy fire. Peter was also very helpful with local tips and travel info!

    Iona2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Peter’s place is really cosy and has everything you need for a comfy stay. The location is great, 2 mins from the ferry and the castle. It is also close to all the amenities you need like restaurants, supermarkets and a nice variety of bars. We had a great time on beautiful Bute!

    Liana2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location, beautifully decorated, exceptionally clean. Fantastic communication between host and visitor. We will now become regulars to this flat. Had a lovely stay

    Deborah2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • This cosy flat is in an excellent location in the middle of Rothesay only a short walk from the ferry. It is a great base to explore the beautiful Isle of Bute. Peter is a very helpful host.

    Joanne2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place, modern and has everything you'd need. Great location and quiet.

    Samantha2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely flat not far from all the local amenities. We found the location to be quiet at night and was well furnished and sparkling clean. We enjoyed the local pub about 20 paces away and had a lovely birthday meal in Harry Haws round the corner. If you like walking then you’ll appreciate that you can go for a several walks on the doorstep. I would recommend this accommodation without any hesitation.

    Janice2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • I’d like to honestly say I was apprehensive about using air bnb stories and after a couple of dubious enquiries that did not pass my expectations. I’m glad to say Peter answered my questions very concise and honestly which made me more than comfortable about booking for a week. It’s a great well appointed and comfortable wee flat so anyone who wants to take the opinion of the best travel critic ie moi, don’t hesitate to book this convenient quite and well appointed comfy wee flat. When you do get checked in go to the square and jump on the round the island tour bus to get your bearings, even if you have a car, Paul’s the driver/tour guide wut a difference won’t disappoint you. Thanks Peter for the great inaugural bnb experience. Cheers
