It is a perfect location to meet up for a special occasion or for a holiday next to Kames Bay.

20 acres of pretty grounds surround the 14th century Kames Castle including a stunning walled garden, a Victorian glasshouse, tennis court and outdoor games for the summer. All this just a 90 minute journey from Glasgow.

For a special occasion such as a wedding or birthday, it is possible to hire all of the cottages on an exclusive use basis. Get everyone together for a family barbecue or, for larger events such as a wedding, hire a marquee for the walled garden and make a weekend or longer stay of the celebrations.

Each cottage has comfortable living space with well equipped kitchens. Each cottage also has smart TVs, free WiFi and a log burner. Clutha is a great space for groups or extended family stays. The Gate Lodge is a lovely bolt hole for grandparents escaping the larger group, self contained but near enough to the other cottages not to be excluded.

Bedrooms are conveniently configured as doubles, twins or triples, perfect for mixed age groups.  There are cosy rooms with garden views and attractive soft furnishings. The cottages offer a mix of freestanding baths and shower cubicles.

The Victorian seaside resort of Rothesay is a short drive from Kames Castle, offering a range of shops and amenities. The Isle of Bute offers year round family friendly events as well as outdoor pursuits from cycling and walking to fishing and golf (3 courses on the island). Hop on the open top bus for a tour of the island, take a trip to the wonderful Mount Stuart or go trekking with alpacas. The independent Bute Museum is worth a visit to discover the Natural and Historical Heritage of the Isle of Bute.
