5/5 Stars Upfront Reviews - September 2023
The views from the sitting room window and the front bedroom are as good as they look in the pictures. Very quiet property, very well appointed with pretty much everything we wanted. 2 doors away from the Kames Hotel (well worthy of several visits) with several other great restaurants within easy reach (Thyme & Tide, Portavadie (really, a good meal), Fyne Raja, The Oyster Catcher ... No wildlife in the Kyles but we did catch a little deer eating the greenery in the back garden. Good wifi and mobile - better than at home. Secure parking. All in all, a stress free break. Wonderful.

Super place, in a fantastic location with stunning views from the property.
Bute View is very comfortable, well equipped, and has great outside space with access to the water. The space under the raised deck was particularly useful to store kayak and bikes.
Only suggestion for improvement would be to provide a cafetière or similar for coffee.
Would return without hesitation.

We had a lovely stay here. Nicely furnished and very clean. Great being able to look out at the comings and goings of the yachts.
Not far from the local shop. Good amenities.

Our Stay in Bute View

Air BNB Review - July 2022
This place is a gem - and even better than we expected. The sea view really is excellent, whether from bed, or from the living room, or the terrace. We loved having a near-private beach, as well as the garden which is huge and nicely planted (and has a very cute robot lawnmower). The house is clean and fresh inside. The Kames hotel is lovely and only 100 yards away, but the house itself feels secluded and private. Very nice indeed.

It has the wow factor both inside and out

5/5 Upfront Reviews - May 2022

Fantastic apartment with large windows so you can appreciate the view.
Great storage space throughout and very comfortable beds and beautiful bedding
Would struggle to seat 4 adults in lounge.
Well equipped kitchen but a small table or breakfast bar would be good.
The whole property was spotless.
On our one day of sunshine we enjoyed the garden and exploring the shore.

beautiful location with stunning views. A very well maintained, equipped and furnished property in a beautiful part of the country. Couldn't fault it.


Lovely accommodation.
5/5 Upfront Reviews - May 2022
Idyllic and peaceful location and well appointed apartment, spotlessly clean. Minor comment: would be even better if there were a few more oven dishes for cooking food in.


Impeccable holiday home. Delightful panoramic views. Great place to recover from stress.
5/5 Upfront Reviews April 2022

From the moment of our arrival we were thrilled by Bute View. At a very stressful time in our lives it was the perfect 8 day retreat.
In some ways, over-equipped, we were surprised by two omissions, a hairdryer (essential) and a bedroom mirror. But we coped (a visitor brought the hairdryer).

A wonderful place to stay. Our best ferry trips were to Tarbert as pedestrians and Rothesay, Mount Stuart by car. Loved it all.


Lovely property and sea views

Sept 2021

The lovely well located apartment has the most breathtaking view of Bute! It was newly renovated, bright clean and well appointed. It's located right near the Kames Hotel and Market which both made it an easy location to stay. I wandered along to Tighnabruaich to the most amazing coffee and conversation at Five West...don't miss it. The highlight of our stay was a breakfast on the terrace.


Excellent location and condition

Sept 2021

The ground floor apartment of the charming stone cottage is beautifully presented and affords a lovely view towards Bute.
Lily was an excellent host. Location is ideal for exploring "Argyll's Secret Coast" and I have no hesitation in recommending it.
