"Charming country cottage on the Isle of Bute"
We stayed here for 5 days over New Years Eve. The cottage was immaculate - so clean & tidy - and it had everything we needed. The views on Bute are gorgeous. You are 10 minutes from the beach & local pub. Cathy & Rob were perfect hosts. There were fresh pancakes, eggs & homemade jam waiting for us on arrival! I would highly recommend this property to anybody looking for a peaceful break in Scotland.

We stayed here for 3 nights, and it was absolutely fantastic. The most relaxing holiday we have had, even with 2 kids! We had a warm friendly greeting from Cathy herself. The location is fab, the cottage was the cleanest I have ever seen. Had lots of books and games and DVDs etc to keep the kids occupied at night. Was very warm and friendly. We will DEFINATLEY be back and would definatley reccomend it!

"Lovely cottage, beautiful scenery, relaxing holiday"
We stayed at Ambrisbeg for a long weekend and enjoyed every moment. Cathy was very helpful and friendly on arrival, helping us with the heating and showing us how to get to the nearest beach. The cottage is large, well provisioned and very tastefully decorated. The island was a quiet haven, we spent a lot of time wandering the shores, spotting seals and searching the rock pools for crabs. Rothesay is a friendly town, where the castle is worth a visit. We highly recommend Ambrisbeg Cottage and would definitely return!

"Hard to imagine a more idyllic holiday setting"
We have just spent two weeks (September 2014) at Ambrisbeg Cottage.
We have lost count of our visits - must be 7 or 8 by now, and in all seasons. This surely bears testament to our sense of satisfaction with the property, its setting, and not least our hosts, Cathy and Robert, who are ever helpful and obliging.

"Peaceful, beautiful stay on Bute"
Had a great stay at Ambrisbeg Cottage on Bute. Clean, comfortable, beautiful cottage in idyllic farmland setting. Walk down to Loch Quien and watch the birds from the bird hide, take in Scalpsie Bay, or just sit in the garden with a good book. We were lucky enough to have great weather but if not, the cottage has Sky tv, lots of good books to read, and is a very welcoming comfortable place to stay. Short, dusty track to cottage so wash the car after the holiday not before! Good value for money. Loved it!
