Beautiful Lakeside Manor, in Isle of Bute (SSBKWH)

Situated on the most accessible of the west coast islands and straddling the Highland Line, this spacious, detached, country house with large deck boasts stunning views over the open water and lies in a rural location, just a few yards from the shoreline.

Most rooms enjoy sea views, the 9 bedrooms each have a TV, and three have a DVD player. This property is full of elegance and charm and enjoys a cosy snug area with comfy sofas and a bar, which can be stocked to your requirements.

The music room has a grand piano, guitars and amps for budding musicians, while the impressive dining room can easily seat 20. A popular destination for fishing, the inland lochs are popular with anglers for coarse and game fishing. Loch Fad offers the opportunity to fish for rainbow trout, and is only 3 miles away.

Relax as you explore the gently, undulating hills, catch glimpses of the wildlife and marvel at the vistas.
For such a compact island, Bute offers varied landscapes from the lush, fertile and rolling hills of the island’s heart to the craggy, heather-covered moorlands of the north and the delightful sandy beaches around the coastline. A haven for walkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts, Bute has a wealth of wildlife to spot including feral goats, buzzards and roe deer. Scalpsie Bay which is set against the magnificent backdrop of Arran, is the home of a large colony of seals.

There are many historical sites to visit including the standing stones at Ettrick Bay, the ancient chapel of St Blane, and the vitrified Iron Age Fort at Dunagoil. Visit the Victorian Gothic mansion of Mount Stuart, the ancestral home of the Marquesses of Bute, and is open to the public along with its beautiful gardens, Bute Museum, Rothesay Castle and the fabulous gardens of Ascog Hall and Ardencraig.

There are many events throughout the year, including the famous annual Jazz Festival, the spectacular Highland Games, traditional agricultural shows, concerts and art festivals; whatever your interest it can be found on the Isle of Bute.

LocationIsle of Bute

The Isle of Bute is an attractive and popular destination, easily accessed across the water from the Firth of Clyde. Showcasing a varied landscape, with rolling hills, sandy beaches, and heather-clad moorland, the island is popular with walkers, cyclists and is also a great spot for fishing. Rothesay, the main town on the island is an attractive Victorian seaside resort, and can be found on the east of the island. Here the traditional esplanade and beautiful gardens of the town make it a stunning location. The Isle of Bute Discovery Centre contains a wealth of information about the island, and can be found in the beautifully restored iron and glass building in the town. The centre is complete with multi-media exhibitions, introducing you to the best of the island. The spectacular ruins of Rothesay Castle are worth visiting, once occupied by Robert the Bruce and later Cromwell, the ruins hide a rich Scottish history. And lastly before you go home, take a visit to Mount Stuart. This magnificent country manor house is an exemplary example of Gothic Revival architecture and Victorian engineering, and with 300 acres of grounds, an adventure playground and picnic area, is an enjoyable family day out.
