Lovely big gardens for the kids and dog to run around in with beautiful views of the loch. Very warm and cosy and would definitely go back to the cottage when we return to Bute.

Ultra cosy and warm really just couldn't fault the accommodation at all. Even our dog was fascinated by watching the waves crash out of the kitchen window!! Found a lovely pub at Strone - The Strone Inn, really friendly and welcoming with lovely homemade food!!
