Everything has been thought of in order to create the best holiday possible and the immediate impression on arrival is one of delight at the high standard of presentation throughout. With a gorgeous expanse of sand just a couple of minutes’ walk away, time can be spent on the beach and the house is handy enough to pop back to if need be.

Cosy comfort is what comes to mind in the light and bright sitting room that has a wood-burning stove to radiate warmth and provide a lovely focal point. Off the sitting room is a sunroom where the amazing views out to sea and the mountains of Arran beyond are perfectly showcased. It is a wonderful place to catch up on a good book and doors lead to patio seating for outdoor eating or enjoying a coffee in the sun. Having a downstairs double bedroom and shower room is great for those with mobility challenges and the utility room is a useful addition to any holiday home.

The other delightful bedrooms, one double and a twin, are upstairs where the elevated position make the stunning views of the water and boats bobbing in the distance the star of the show. It really is a blissful way to be greeted when waking up in the mornings.

Park right by the door and once the gate is shut the mature garden is fully enclosed so children and pets can make the absolute most of it. The huge lawn lets them properly stretch their legs and the outside tap is ideal for cleaning up after running around. A pleasant walk leads down to picturesque St Ninian’s Bay where lots of birdlife can be spotted including sea eagles that are a truly awesome sight.

Dog Friendly. Electric Vehicle Charger available onsite. Luxury Self Catering Holiday Accommodation. Coastal Location. Ideal UK Staycation. Perfect location for a special Scottish Christmas and New Year (Hogmanay).

Location: Seaview Cottage Straad, Isle of Bute, PA20 0QF

" We had an amazing holiday at Seaview Cottage, the best UK holiday we have ever had. The location and views are perfect, and the cottage was spotless, providing everything we needed. The personalised welcome pack was very thoughtful and so lovely to be greeted with this after our long drive there, along with some beautiful fresh flowers. Aisha the dog loved her welcome pack too. The very short 3 minute stroll to the quiet, beautiful beach was fab and our doggy was in her element. There are cows, sheep and donkeys very close to the cottage but they seemed very used to humans and dogs so Aisha didn't seem too bothered with them. I loved how remote and quiet it was, very relaxing and could totally switch off. It was never too far to drive to anywhere either. Couple of things we would recommend are the driving trail around the island (there is a guide in the cottage) which allowed you to see all the main sites helping you to choose what you might want to go back to, and also a drive to the northern ferry at Rhubodach and walk up the hills there to view the Kyles of Bute from above, absolutely stunning! The town of Rothesay had everything you need and is only a 15 min drive. Lots of little independent shops and a Co-op which supplies everything you need (and they do deliver to Seaview Cottage). Thank you for a fabulous holiday, we will certainly be returning next year! "
