Property Description

Full description

For full details please request a copy of the brochure.

Located within easy reach of Glasgow,
Scotland's largest city, yet in a wonderful island
setting, Rhubodach is the much loved holiday
home of the late Lord and Lady Attenborough.
The estate makes for a great place to not only
live but also to continue the established holiday
letting business.

Rhubodach is situated on the North East coast of the Isle of Bute. 15 miles long by 4 miles wide, Bute is the perfect island getaway and being only a stone's throw from the mainland is one of the most accessible of the western isles.

With a mild climate and renowned for its on and off-shore wildlife, Bute is an area of natural beauty and an outdoor enthusiasts' haven. There are numerous opportunities to enjoy coastal hillwalking or cycling. Fishing enthusiasts can take advantage of both freshwater and sea fishing on hill lochs and the Firth of Clyde. There is an interesting 13-hole golf course in the close-by Port Bannatyne and other courses are available at Kingarth (9-hole) and Rothesay (18-hole). The latter has views towards Loch Striven and the Kyles of Bute.

Bute sits in the midst of some excellent sailing with the Kyles of Bute, a National Scenic Area. There are marinas and sheltered moorings in Rothesay and Port Bannatyne.

The town of Rothesay offers a full range of local amenities including restaurants, hotels, supermarket, several banks, various shops, small hospital and dentist. Nursery, primary and secondary education is available on the island. From Rothesay and Rhubodach itself, Caledonian MacBrayne operate a frequent ferry service to Wemyss Bay and Colintraive respectively on the mainland. A range of events are held on the island including the Highland Games, Agricultural Show and the family friendly Bute Music Festival.

Rhubodach lies only 350 metres from the Rhubodach ferry terminal which connects, via a five-minute crossing, to Colintraive on the mainland. The traditionally constructed, stone under slate roof, white-washed Rhubodach Farmhouse, annexe, Keeper's Cottage and outbuildings form a charming courtyard, creating a picturesque destination with spectacular views of the coast and surrounding area. Also looking over the Kyles of Bute but closer to the sea and sitting in its own garden, is the charming Rhubodach Cottage.

The Farmhouse, annexe and Rhubodach Cottage are let by the current owners as high quality holiday accommodation with Keeper's Cottage occupied by employees. Due to the wonderful setting and high standard of accommodation, the holiday lettings have a strong customer base with many guests returning year after year.
