Friends and families will love Balvonie as somewhere to meet for a holiday, weekend break away or a big birthday celebration, making use of the in house party room. This Arts and Crafts holiday house near Wemyss Bay has a special blend of period features combined with a sense of relaxed luxury.

Perhaps wander down to the Eglington Bar in Skelmorlie for a pint before coming back to the big house for dinner.

The dining room has a fantastic long table to seat up to 30 guests for an evening of fine food and wine.

Located in the village of Skelmorlie and a short drive from the wild shingle beach at Wemyss Bay, a day by the sea is going to be a popular idea with the children. Pop into the award winning heritage railway station and cafe or take a ferry to the pretty town of Rothesay to see Bute House and the Bute Museum.
