|Further details indoors|
Inside, the house is warm and cosy, with sea views from every room. It has a comfortable living/dining room running along the back of the house with dramatic views through two full-length glass doors, opening to Juliet-style balconies.
The accommodation is flexible. There is a double bedroom with a king-size bed, and a family room, comprising a double bed and 2 bunk-beds. The house can therefore sleep 6, if 4 family-members are sharing the family room.
Each bedroom has lovely views, up or down the shore. You will hear the sea all the time when you are in the cottage.
The kitchen is newly-fitted, modern and well equipped with an electric hob and gas oven, a fridge and dishwasher. The house has gas central heating. There’s a new shower room, and towels and bedding are provided.
|Further details outdoors|
The house stands in its own walled garden facing the sea. The garden is accessed through the kitchen door and down some stone steps to a patio area, where French garden table and chairs provide an outside dining area. A wrought iron, anchor gate leads down to the rocks and seashore below.
Although there is no private car parking, it is easy to park on the opposite side of the road running in front of the house
The Argyll and Bute region
The Isle of Bute lies in Scotland’s Firth of Clyde, tucked into the spectacular sea lochs of southern Argyll, just north of Arran, and is easily accessible by regular ferry services from the mainland. It has many places of historical interest including a castle and the magnificent Mountstuart House.
For lovers of the outdoors, Bute is a great holiday destination with all manner of activities from walking, cycling and sailing to golfing and fishing.
Bute has many interesting places to visit from the majestic Mountstuart House, family seat of the Marquess of Bute, just 2 miles south of Montford Cottage, to Rothesay Castle with its close association with the Stewart Kings of Scotland.
There are plenty of sports and activities to enjoy on the island including walking, sea and loch angling, cycling (bike hire available) and golf. The island has 3 golf courses, each with its own challenges and all with spectacular views.
The main town of Rothesay is about 3 miles away and has plenty of facilities including a small cinema, swimming pool, visitors’ centre, shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. There is a lovely putting green on the front which is open in high season.

"Cosy cottage with picturesque views, we will be back!!"
Six of us had a very comfortable stay at Montford Cottage for New Year 2011-2012. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. It has good sized rooms, wonderful views and is a cosy getaway for weekend breaks or longer stays. It has lots of character and a lovely seaside feel, even during the winter weather. The location is excellent, right on the coast with a stony beach. The town is close by and the island is perfect for waking, running and cycling ... we also saw some wildlife on our walks. I would definitely recommend it to friends!
