Kames is a small private estate comprising 7 cottages located in 20 acres of private gardens and woodland, nestled beside the beautiful coastal location of Kames Bay on the Isle of Bute. This stunning collection of recently renovated properties, surrounding a 14th century keep, provides flexibility and choice for all kinds of friends, families and multi generational bookings.

Living areas are modern and comfortable with ample seating for the number of guests accommodated in each cottage. Each lounge has a log burning stove and a TV to make cosy spaces for socialising and relaxing. Kitchens are well equipped and 6 cottages include a dishwasher for your convenience. Clutha has dining for 9 if you are looking to enjoy a special meal together and the owners can arrange for outside caterers to come in and prepare it for you. Alternatively there are barbecues outside each property which opens the door for some al fresco eating and socialising.

Bedroom accommodation across the cottages offers a mix of doubles, twins, singles and bunks giving choice to all groups. Bathrooms facilities are plentiful with over bath showers, showers, baths and en suites.

5 of the cottages have only ground floor accommodation, making them popular with less mobile group members. The grounds offer fabulous lawned areas where youngsters can run around to let off steam. Visitors can enjoy a game of all weather tennis or putting before enjoying a wildlife walk around the estate where they may spot roe deer, hedgehogs or some ancient trees. The 2 acre 18th century walled garden has a glorious glasshouse containing lemon trees and aged vines.

Explore the lovely Isle of Bute, and take advantage of the many opportunities for fishing, walking, riding, golf and sailing right on the doorstep. Bute Museum is also worth a visit, just 9 minutes away in the island capital of Rothesay.
