Local information:

The Isle of Bute is a beautiful and friendly place and we will be happy to answer any questions or queries you may have.

Our flat is well located for access to the town, as well as the beach and nature walks. It has wonderful views of the sea from both bedrooms, we hope it is welcoming and comfortable and you enjoy your stay. Below are some useful links for further information about the Island.

Please take a look at the Visit Bute website:

The Isle of Bute is situated in Scotland’s Firth of Clyde, to the north of Arran, and is easily accessible by regular ferry services from the mainland.

There are two ferry access ports to the island both operated by Caledonian MacBrayne Ferries.

The Waverley, the world’s last seafaring paddle steamer, also makes regular trips to Bute. You can book a trip on the Waverley here.

Colintraive – Rhubodach

There is a tiny hop of 350m from the mainland having driven the scenic route from Glasgow (approximately 75 miles by car ) and takes you along the shores of Loch Lomond and through the Arrochar Alps in the heart of Argyll. This is some of the most stunning scenery in Scotland. Stop at the top of “Rest and Be Thankful” and admire the view. Skirting the top of Loch Fyne, with views across to Inveraray Castle, you head south and arrive at the Colintraive ferry for the 5 minute crossing to Rhubodach on Bute. The crossings are frequent, so if you just miss the boat it’ll be back soon. Rothesay is about 7 miles from here.

Wemyss Bay – Rothesay

The principal route to the island is by car & passenger ferry from Wemyss Bay. The crossing takes 35 mins with sailings every 45mins – 1 hour depending upon the time of day. You can’t book – you turn up and pay at the pierhead. If you’re not driving catch one of the frequent trains from Glasgow Central Station – jump on the train at Paisley if you have flown in to Glasgow Airport.

Travelling to Scotland by Air

Bute is handily placed for access from both Glasgow Airports and only an extra 45mins or so from Edinburgh Airport. The 2 Glasgow Airports are Glasgow International and Prestwick. Prestwick airport is actually not that close to Glasgow but it is the west of Scotland Ryanair hub with many incoming flights. There is car hire available and the connection to Wemyss Bay by road takes between 30-40 mins. If you are flying in to Glasgow International, you can also rent a car. Wemyss Bay is about 40 mins. Alternatively a short taxi or bus ride takes you to Paisley Gilmour Street station for a connecting train to the pier at Wemyss Bay.

Edinburgh Airport is also a Ryanair hub – mostly for northern European routes. The road connection to Wemyss Bay takes approximately 1.5 hrs depending on the traffic, but is motorway for all but the final 10 miles or so.

Please check out the popular cycle routes around the island:

*Please check the Bus timetable:

Also useful is an Isle of Bute cycle path

Post Office:

The post office is a 2 minute walk from the flat.

Walk southwest on Castle Street towards Quay Street. Turn right onto Quay Street, then turn left onto Marine Road. The Post Office is 250 feet along this road.

If you have any questions please contact us.

Thank you

We are a family of 5 and had the best time at Lucindas home. Everything was set up perfectly. The Island was a joy to discover and we had wonderful views from the house. All in all a perfect stay. Thanks very much.

Lovely small flat with sea views

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay on Bute. The flat is cosy but was fine with one child and the dogs. Bedding was very luxurious (although the metal bed squeaks for Scotland!). We arrived early but this wasn’t a problem and were made to feel welcome. When we encountered an issue with the shower it was fixed quickly and with a massive apology. My only constructive feedback would be thicker curtains (child found it hard to sleep as is was so bright) and tighten up the metal bed to stop the sqeaking. Thanks for a lovely short stay :)

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just spend 5 days in this lovely property. It had everything that we required for a comfortable stay and was dog friendly too! The views from the bedrooms are amazing and only a couple of minutes walk to the seafront which the children and dogs loved.

Genuinely felt like a home from home and we can't wait to return.

Comfortable and very quiet little flat with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this very cosy and clean flat for three nights.

The beds are very comfortable and we had the rest we needed. The area is very quiet and at night you hear no noise whatsoever.

The kitchen is very well equipped and we felt really at home.
