  • Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Traditional Victorian house standing in a hillside location overlooking Rothesay Bay, with spectacular views up Loch Striven, the Kyles of Bute and across to the Argyll and Ayrshire coasts.

    On the very edge of the town of Rothesay, with its shops and amenities, but truly rural in character. The large secure garden is surrounded by fields and woodland, with the back gate linked by a footpath through the trees to a convenient bridal path.

    The decking surrounding the conservatory holds a hot tub with panoramic views across the water.

    Ideally suited to families or groups looking for a relaxing base to explore the island of Bute and the surrounding mainland. The ferry crossing to Colintraive, provides a gateway to the heart of the Cowal peninsula and on to the many attractions in Argyll.

There's plenty of socialising space in the house with a gigantic garden as well. The hot tub is huge, plenty of space for all of us to fit in. The locals... more
