“Idyllic & welcoming”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed here for 4 nights between Christmas and over New Year. The cottage was very homely with all home comforts (including wireless and Sky) and exceptionally clean. Personal added touches from the owners Cathy & Robert (eggs from their own chickens, shortbread and chocolate). The cottage is in a beautiful remote location but still close enough to local amenities and sites. A great location to explore the island from, plus great hospitality. Highly recommended. Thank you for a lovely stay.

“Amazing Scenery & Friendly People”

I stayed at Ambrisbeg with 3 friends, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was spotless, very cosy and inviting. We were greeted with beautiful flowers from Cathy's garden and fresh eggs. We saw lots of wildlife, including seals and deer. Had a great lunch at Ettrick Tearooms and a fantastic walk down to the lighthouse on the southern tip of the Island. I would recommend anyone to visit Bute. Ambrisbeg cottage was a fantastic place to stay, just wish we'd had more time.

“Great little getaway ”
Reviewed July 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed for a week in July 15 and absolutely loved it, the cottage is a short drive out of town and easy to find. It's in a lovely quiet location and a great place to relax, it's immaculate inside and really homely. I would definitely recommend this if you are looking to get away from it all.
