“Fabulous, we'll be back!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Ambrisbeg is a lovely cottage owned by a lovely couple - Cathy & Robert. It is spacious, clean, in good condition and well equipped. The countryside is there to meet you as soon as you walk out the door and there are great photo opportunities and walks for any taste throughout the island. We are looking forward to going back again soon.

“Lovely, spacious, homely and quiet.”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ambrisbeg Cottage. The flat was lovely, spacious and homely and what a superb location! Awaiting our arrival was a pot of homemade jam and some eggs provided by the owner's chickens. We loved the island, especially for it's all round views.

“What a fantastic retreat.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Myself and my wife spent a long weekend at Ambrisbeg cottage. Our hosts Cathy and Robert McKirdy where fantastic and made us feel extremely welcome on our arrival and throughout our stay. On arrival fresh eggs from the owners Hens where on the Kitchen table for us to enjoy and all fixtures and fittings were first class including iPod docking, stereo, sky TV a well equipped kitchen and a very comfy Bed and furniture. The cottage is set within easy walking distance from the beautiful Scalpsie Bay where Seals can be seen basking and near Loch Quinn white a beautiful Bird hide. I am due to travel overseas in a matter of days and it was just what the Doctor ordered for myself and my wife before I go. We will be using this cottage again.

“Tranquil retreat”

The cottage it self is very well equipped t.v., iPod speaker, huge bath, washing machine the list goes on! We stayed in late December and the cottage was very warm which was great. The heating system was really easy to work too.
The cottage is in a great location, easy to get to from rothesay and very straight forward from Glasgow, the fact you had to go on a ferry made it feel like a real holiday! Beautiful scenery and some great walks. The beach was really stunning, cold but stunning!
We didn't have any phone signal the whole time we were there, it was a lovely escape. Thank you Cathy for a lovely welcome and great holiday.
