Situation
St Bruoc Manse is situated on the island of Bute on the west of Scotland. The property is located in Port Bannatyne which is the coastal settlement just to the north of the Island capital of Rothesay.

The house is set in well-established and mature gardens which are gently sloping and from its slightly elevated position there are pleasant and pretty immediate aspects out over the sheltered anchorage of Kames Bay. The views stretch away to the north towards Loch Striven with its high sided mountains and glens which is the entry to the world famous Kyles of Bute and where there is always interest and movement of private and commercial boating craft.

Rothesay, which is 3 miles to the south, has thriving shopping, leisure and educational facilities including a larger sized Co-op. Caledonian MacBrayne operates a frequent ferry service to Wemyss Bay, which has direct rail links to Glasgow. A second ferry service runs between Rhubodach on the northern side of Bute to Colintraive giving short crossing access to the mainland, Argyll and the West Highlands.

The two nearest airports are Glasgow and Prestwick, which are a circa 40 and 50 minutes’ drive respectively in normal driving conditions from Wemyss Bay.

Leisure
Rothesay has an 18 hole golf course enjoying outstanding views of the Firth of Clyde and Arran. Smaller courses are at Port Bannatyne and Kingarth. Bute is an area of significant natural beauty and mild climate, with many opportunities for coastal and hill walking and mountain biking. Fresh water and sea fishing are available, and there are shooting and stalking opportunities. The island has its own grass airstrip for light aircraft and microlights.

Sailing
