Wildlife and Nature holidays on the Isle of Bute, Argyll, Scotland

The island has many walking trails, such as the West Island Way or you can make up your own route, and whilst out walking you may spot roe deer, pheasant, or a fox. A short drive or a longer walk will take you to Scalpsie Bay, which is a lovely, secluded bay on the west coast of the island. The bay is known for its resident herd of grey seals, which can often be seen sunning themselves on rocks just offshore, at the northwestern end of the bay. There are also bicycles and E-bikes for hire from the main town, Rothesay, and for those who find themselves in the right spot at the right time, they may be rewarded with the sight of some otters, or red squirrel. 

Located in the Straad on the west coast of the island is Seaview Cottage, which is just a few minutes walk to the beach at St. Ninian's Bay. Recently renovated, this five star rated 3 bedroomed property sleeps up to 6 people and is fully equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday.

This tranquil setting is the perfect spot to watch birds or the occasional hare who pops in for a nibble at the lawn. The short walk to the beach will allow you to see the many shore birds that live along the coastline, mornings and evenings are particularly pleasant as you will hear the magical sound of curlews as they begin and end their day. 

Seaview Cottage has private off street parking for up to two cars, and an electric vehicle charger is available. The fully enclosed garden is ideal for dogs.

There are few truly quiet spaces left these days, however Seaview Cottage Straad is one of those places - this makes it the ideal location to truly get away from it all.
