We spent a couple of nights at this wonderful small hotel while in Rothesay to attend the highland games. Unfortunately it rained for the entire weekend but we loved the hotel. Breakfast choice is great and caters for vegetarian options. Located right on the waterfront.

We stayed at the Bayview for 4 nights in July and what a brilliant hotel it is. Very comfortable room with a fantastic view over the bay and the food was excellent with a wide variety at breakfast. Only a short 10 minute walk to the centre of Rothesay and very friendly hosts
