This is a magical property, we loved every minute. We were 6 adults and 2 children and It was well equipped and rooms were laid out well, we managed to cook a three course meals every night. The sitting room is large and cosy with a real fire. The kitchen was big enough for us all to relax in whilst people cooked and the next door dining room was lRead morearge enough for us all to sit together. We slept really well and all the bedding and towels were fresh and clean, it felt just like being at home. Hide

Stunning location, lovely property with plenty of equipment for cooking. Kids played on the beach area for hours. Easy access to Bute from the nearby ferry. Mount Stuart definitely worth a visit. Very friendly locals!

Lovely, lovely house! Fantastic location. We really enjoyed the peace. Even the children loved it. Paddle boarded, sailed on Loch Fyne, went to the Spa at Portavadie, day on Bute etc. Weather changeable but being in a fabulous house and setting made all the difference.

Lovely house right on the water. The house itself is luxurious and well equipped. Lovely kitchen window looking out over the water is a lovely area to sit and chat in the evening. We would thoroughly recommend here for a holiday.

If you want a beautifully decorated house, plus tranquility, wildlife and fabulous water views, then this is the place. We found that five nights was perfect with a young family. We recommend a visit to the secret Caladh waterfall near Tighnabruaich, 25 minutes drive away (involving a 15 minute walk on a good dirt and gravel road).
