"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!
