There is a garden to the front and our project for the spring is the landscaping of the back garden!
The seafront is less than a minutes walk away and from there it is a pleasant seafront walk into town in one direction and an even shorter walk to the village of Port Bannatyne in the other direction.
The house is situated in a quiet road, with views over Ardbeg Bowling Green where non members are welcome.

A unique feature of our island is that it is possible to stand with one foot in the Scottish Highlands and the other in the Central Lowlands!! This is because the goelogical Highland Faultline goes right through the middle of the island!!
The town is well served by a variety of shops, restaurants and pubs. Rothesay also has its own moated castle and stately Mount Stuart House, home of the Marquess of Bute. The island is blessed with a number of sandy beaches, 3 golf courses, all with stunning views, loch and sea fishing and many lovely walks.
You could have a fantastic holiday without ever leaving the island, however if you want to travel further afield there is a regular ferry service every 45mins to the mainland and from there an easy drive to glasgow(45mins) or Edinburgh (1hr 45mins). There is also a ferry at the north of the island which is an ideal starting point for a trip to Loch Lomond (1hr) and the rest of the Scottish Highlands. The last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, The Waverley, calls into Rothesay over the summer months and a sail aboard this famous lady is something not to be missed.
Bute was the venue chosen by Stella McCartney for her wedding and is also the home of Richard Attenborough.
