Shepherds Cottage description

Situated on the most accessible of the west coast islands, straddling the Highland Line, this semi-detached holiday property boasts stunning views over the Kyles of Bute. Shepherd’s Cottage offers walking direct from the door, with the beach within walking distance. Explore the gentle hills, catch glimpses of the wildlife and marvel at the vistas. A compact island, Bute offers a variety of landscapes from the lush, fertile and rolling hills of the island’s heart to the craggy, heather-covered moorlands of the north and the delightful sandy beaches around the coastline. A haven for walkers, cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts, Bute has a wealth of wildlife to spot including feral goats, buzzards, roe deer; Scalpsie bay, set against the magnificent backdrop of Arran, is the home of a large colony of seals. There are many historical sites to visit including standing stones at Ettrick Bay and the vitrified Iron Age fort at Dunagoil. Visit the Victorian gothic mansion of Mount Stuart, Bute Museum, Rothesay Castle and the fabulous gardens of Ascog Hall and Ardencraig. With many events throughout the year, including the now famous annual Jazz Festival and the spectacular Highland Games, traditional agricultural shows, concerts and art festivals, whatever your interest it can be found on Bute.
