A cosy and bright one bedroom flat in a small seaside village on Isle Of Bute. Our place is a Scottish island rural getaway (but just an over an hours travel time from Glasgow) which is right on the beach with woodburning stove, good views, great walks, and near to local points of interest such as Mount Stuart House.
Our little one bed place in secluded Kilchattan Bay on the Isle of Bute is clean, quiet and bright.
There's a wood burning stove in the living room from which there's views over the well-kept front garden (which is shared with the other flats in the block), a church and the sea. We have a large TV and DVD player, and feel free to read the books on the shelf. No broadband on this part of the island but wireless internet (3G and Vodafone works well if you have a dongle).
Kitchen includes everything you need for cooking (inc microwave/hob/oven) and a washing machine. Please note the large fridge in the picture has been replaced with an ordinary domestic fridge!
The one bedroom is small, with a double bed and storage for clothes, and partial sea views.
There's a shower room, and outside there's a shed with log storage.
The flat is right next to the local post office/shop, and there's a pub half a mile walk up the road which serves good food. There are regular bus services to Rothesay (10 miles) and the rest of the island.
But the best thing about Kilchattan Bay and the reason to come here is the peace and quiet and the beautiful scenery. Easy access to beautiful beaches, walks along the coastline, cycles round and off the island.
HOW TO GET HERE:
CalMac Ferry from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay (19 sailings daily).
Regular buses from Rothesay to Kilchattan Bay (it's a 10 mile distance). There is also a taxi stand at the ferry port in Rothesay, or you can hire bikes from next to the taxi stand (opening hours for bike hire is 9 till 5 though).
No smoking sorry.
Fine with pets, appreciate them being kept off the sofa and never allowed on the bed!
