The SpaceTWO BEDROOM B&B Please note: This old house has it's original, large, Victorian bath... but NO SHOWER!! You will find spiders here, if you look for them but they tend to stay in the corners and don't bother anyone! As mentioned in the opening summary, the house is old and happily retains the character of it's era. I should point out that while it is comfortable, it has GENUINE "shabby chic", GENUINE distressed paintwork (in the places where as yet I haven't managed to get up the ladder!), and the garden has a somewhat overgrown aspect. It is of course, the wildness of nearly three acres that encourages a huge variety of creatures that also lives here! As I write it is a warm summer's day and the widows are open, light pouring in, balmy breezes blowing through, bugs flying in and out, and a multitude of birds is singing. The winter is special too but be aware that should you chose to stay in the cold months, only certain rooms are warm. Rest assured that your bedrooms and the kitchen and living room are kept warm thanks to a constant effort by the chief stoker (your hostess!). As long as it is clear that moving from the kitchen to the living room will feel like crossing the Urals in February then all will be well. The Rayburn heats radiators that keep the chill off in the bedrooms and there are thick feather duvets and blankets galore AND hot water bottles for each bed. This more than suffices for anyone who has ever stayed here but again, if you do need to sleep at equatorial temperatures…you may not have read this far anyway! You will have the means to make real coffee in your room with proper milk and breakfast can be as simple or as elaborate as you wish, within reason! I make all my own bread and preserves and provide organic food where possible. Omlettes are no trouble and I am happy to make porridge to your specifications. For the record, I make my own porridge with lots of whole milk, cooked well with a pinch of salt (tiny, barely discernible) and a pinch of brown sugar on top. If there's cream to hand, a bit of that goes in too! Please see addenda at bottom, "Other things to note" Guest AccessAs this is my home without divisions, separate entrances or those nasty fire doors that snap shut behind you, guest space is under the same roof as my space but guests of course have access to their rooms, the living room, the kitchen, and the bathroom. I am happy to let folks use the oven to warm up take aways, or fix their own food, etc. and if you desire a change I could be persuaded to do evening meals! Dining in the winter months is in the kitchen. There is also a barn which can be used to store bikes, etc. Interaction with GuestsYou will have gathered by now that the house is always occupied and I am usually here all day. I work from home and I am assuming that most people would be out and about during the day. However, if you wish to stay in your room and read all day that's absolutely fine. My intention is to be an agreeable hostess without being imposing! The NeighborhoodThe surroundings are superb with plenty of walks in all directions. The beaches are never far away and I can heartily recommend the café at Ettrick Bay, which is an easy walk from here and open almost every day of the year. If a sea view while you eat your lunch is what you're after, this is it! While there are a few cottages and a house in the vicinity, the manse is still secluded though not totally isolated. Nevertheless, the landscape is very sparsely populated and can be best described as truly rural. If a place to escape from the din of modern living is what you seek then this is the place for you! Getting AroundBute is easily reached from Glasgow and the airport by train, which brings you directly to the ferry at Wemyss Bay. I am happy to collect guests from Rothesay ferry terminal if need be. It is possible to get around the island on the bus service and you can also rent bicycles in town from The Bike Shed. Other Things to NoteIt is perhaps worth mentioning that the bathroom is shared with the owner. Nevertheless, guests have priority and all the hot water! Please note there is no "power shower" or shower of any sort but the original Victorian bath is very pleasant!. The rooms provide ample space for a family of four with a comfy spare mattress to hand. I am happy to offer reduced prices for children 12 and under. Just ask. Please know that a very friendly, fuzzy dog lives here! Addenda, 10th August 2016: I wish to make it crystal-clear that there are no "24/7" power-shower facilities at my house. As originally stated, there is no shower of any other description either. There is, however, a large and by most accounts, luxurious original, i.e. old, Victorian bath and a large capacity hot water tank that supplies near-boiling water in the mornings (6-9) and evenings ( 5-10). Outside these times, I am more than happy to over-ride the emersion to give a boost of heat should it be required. Please, just ask : ) !!

The SpaceThe principal owners of Ardencraig House - David and Elaine Daniels - came to visit Bute for a day in 2003 and decided to stay permanently. You will understand why when you visit Bute, Scotland's Unexplored Isle.

Carefully located in a sheltered position overlooking the Firth of Clyde, the house stands in large gardens which are occasionally visited by the local deer and other wildlife. Ardencraig House Apartments are fully equipped with everything you should need, such as flat-screen TVs, a DVD player complete with a small selection of family DVDs, games and books, and even WIFI on request. Four have a sea view across the Firth of Clyde to the Ayrshire coast and the fifth apartment, Kilbride, looks out over the gardens to the rear of Ardencraig House.

The NeighborhoodArdencraig House Apartments are only one minute from Ardencraig Gardens. Here you'll see during the summer months, beautiful displays of flowers and plants. We're also only a five minute walk down to the beach and a five minute drive to Mount Stuart House. Getting AroundGetting to Bute is really easy. It is one of Scotland's most accessible islands. There are hourly trains from Glasgow to Wemyss Bay, where you catch the ferry to Rothesay. The train journey takes less than an hour. There are ferries every 45 minutes and the crossing takes 35 minutes. Check the train timetable at First ScotRail where the Wemyss Bay timetable is "Route 16 Glasgow - Wemyss Bay/Gourock." The Wemyss Bay/Rothesay ferry timetable can be seen on the Caledonian MacBrayne Website, where you can also check the Colintraive/Rhubodach timetable. Car drivers often enjoy the longer but more scenic drive to Colintraive in Argyll, where the ferry crossing to Rhubodach on Bute takes a mere 5 minutes. From the ferry terminal in Rothesay turn left and drive along the coast road for just over 1 mile. Just past the Craigmore Tearoom turn right up Albany Road, following the signs for Ardencraig Gardens. Turn left at the top into Crichton Road and where the road bends sharply to the right continue straight on, keeping to the left. This is Ardencraig Road. You will come to a small white lodge house outside the entrance to Ardencraig House. Come up the private driveway and park on the left hand side.

In our view Bute is a fantastic island to live in and visit. It has a proper town with a good range of shops , cafes and restaurants. It has one of the only round medieval castles in Scotland. It has a wonderful small independent museum and a small independent cinema. It has beautiful gardens and a beach and a thriving marina.What more could you want! If a wee bustling town is not your thing the island still has plenty to offer. The gently undulating roads are great for cycling, there is The West Island Way if you fancy a hike. There are three golf courses,pony trekking, sites of historical interest, fishing lochs, wildlife a plenty and of course beautiful beaches.

High Chair available at a fee of £10 - to be paid on arrival Cot available at a fee of £10 - to be paid on arrival Fee per dog: £10 - to be paid on arrival There is a host of interesting places to visit on the Isle of Bute. A "must-see" is Mount Stuart House, Britain's best example of Victorian Gothic architecture. You feel a sense of wonderment in every room, from the magnificent marble hall to the radiantly white marble-chapel. The 300-acre grounds, with their various gardens and glorious vistas over the Firth of Clyde, are a haven of tranquillity. Another excellent visitor attraction is Rothesay Castle. The Stuart Kings spent their summers here; a stronghold whose circular design is unique in Scotland. Spend an hour or two exploring the castle, and you'll relive over four turbulent centuries of Scottish history — from when Vikings took control in 1230 to the burning by the Duke of Argyll in 1685. Ascog Hall Fernery & Garden was built around 1870 and has now been fully restored. The fernery is a unique and beautiful feature housing 80 sub-tropical fern species including tree ferns found in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Mauritius and Mexico, as well as a Todea Barbara, estimated to be 1,000 years old. Additionally, there are the world-renowned Victorian Toilets - never was a call of nature answered with such splendour! Rothesay's palatial public toilets were commissioned in 1899 during Bute's heyday as a holiday resort. The ornate design incorporates fine ceramic tiles, marbled and enamelled alcoves and glass-sided cisterns. Bute also hosts many events throughout the year, many of which, like the now famous annual Jazz Festival, are now 'must attend' events. From the spectacular Highland Games, to the traditions of the Agricultural Show, from concerts to art and line dancing festivals, whatever your interest it can be found on Bute. The peaceful village of Port Bannatyne was originally a fishing village. In the early 1800s it was self sufficient. In the 1850s there were over 235 herring skiffs based there. However, the future of the village lay in tourism. The steamer pier (opposite Ardyne House) was built in 1857. Port Bannatyne then became a popular holiday location and many houses were built to accommodate Glaswegians who came “doon the water” for their annual holidays. Perhaps the village's most significant contribution was during the Second World War when it became the centre of Britain's submarine capability. Much of Britain's submarine training took place from Port Bannatyne and in the neighbouring Kyles of Bute and Loch Striven. The crews of the X Craft midget submarines – which successfully damaged the German battleship Tirpitz in 1943 – were trained here and there is a memorial to them in the village. Today “The Port” is still a popular location for people seeking a peaceful seaside holiday.

The 300-acre grounds, with their various gardens and glorious vistas over the Firth of Clyde, are a haven of tranquillity. Another excellent visitor attraction is Rothesay Castle. The Stuart Kings spent their summers here; a stronghold whose circular design is unique in Scotland. Spend an hour or two exploring the castle, and you'll relive over four turbulent centuries of Scottish history — from when Vikings took control in 1230 to the burning by the Duke of Argyll in 1685. Ascog Hall Fernery & Garden was built around 1870 and has now been fully restored. The fernery is a unique and beautiful feature housing 80 sub-tropical fern species including tree ferns found in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Mauritius and Mexico, as well as a Todea Barbara, estimated to be 1,000 years old. Additionally, there are the world-renowned Victorian Toilets - never was a call of nature answered with such splendour! Rothesay's palatial public toilets were commissioned in 1899 during Bute's heyday as a holiday resort. The ornate design incorporates fine ceramic tiles, marbled and enamelled alcoves and glass-sided cisterns. Bute also hosts many events throughout the year, many of which, like the now famous annual Jazz Festival, are now 'must attend' events. From the spectacular Highland Games, to the traditions of the Agricultural Show, from concerts to art and line dancing festivals, whatever your interest it can be found on Bute.

Walking on Bute is a joy, because of the varied landscape and the quiet roads and footpaths. The West Island Way was Scotland's first long distance island footpath, developed and opened in 2000 as part of Bute's events to celebrate the millennium. The path is 30 miles of way marked walking which runs in a circular route from south to north and takes in track, moor, forest and coastal walking. Opposite Academy Apartments, a flight of steps takes you up to a high road that will give you direct access to the West Island Way. You can do the route in sections and catch local transport back to Rothesay, or choose to do the whole thing in 2 days with an overnight en route. If you prefer to stay closer to base, there are some lovely marked walks in and around the town itself, for instance up Canada Hill to enjoy the spectacular views from the top! There is an excellent selection of local walking maps and bus timetables in the apartment, along with lots of other local information. For a more relaxing way to see the island, why not take a tour on the Discovering Bute open top bus. This departs from Rothesay town centre 4 times a day in high season (stops in September) for a round trip of the island. Enjoy lunch in the Ettrick Bay cafĂŠ, with its excellent home baked cakes (try the meringues!), take a long walk across this beautiful beach, then catch the next bus to complete the tour. Your ticket is also valid on local buses for the same 24 hour period. Even in the off season, there is still an excellent local bus service serving the island. During the summer months, the Waverley Paddle Steamer calls into Rothesay harbour on a regular basis. The Waverley offers a great day out, weather permitting, sailing from Rothesay up the Kyles of Bute to Tighnabruaich, or across to the Isle of Arran or to Loch Fyne. The island is host to a wide variety of events and festivals, including the annual Jazz Festival, usually held early May, which is now one of the UK's leading jazz festivals and attracts visitors from around the world.

A "must-see" is Mount Stuart House, Britain's best example of Victorian Gothic architecture. You feel a sense of wonderment in every room, from the magnificent marble hall to the radiantly white marble-chapel. The 300-acre grounds, with their various gardens and glorious vistas over the Firth of Clyde, are a haven of tranquillity. Another excellent visitor attraction is Rothesay Castle. The Stuart Kings spent their summers here - a stronghold whose circular design is unique in Scotland. Spend an hour or two exploring the castle, and you'll relive over four turbulent centuries of Scottish history — from when Vikings took control in 1230 to the burning by the Duke of Argyll in 1685. Ascog Hall Fernery & Garden was built around 1870 and has now been fully restored. The fernery is a unique and beautiful feature housing 80 sub-tropical fern species including tree ferns found in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Mauritius and Mexico, as well as a Todea Barbara, estimated to be 1,000 years old. Additionally, there are the world-renowned Victorian Toilets - never was a call of nature answered with such splendour! Rothesay's palatial public toilets were commissioned in 1899 during Bute's heyday as a holiday resort. The ornate design incorporates fine ceramic tiles, marbled and enamelled alcoves and glass-sided cisterns. Bute also hosts many events throughout the year, many of which, like the now famous annual Jazz Festival, are now 'must attend' events. From the spectacular Highland Games, to the traditions of the Agricultural Show, from concerts to art and line-dancing festivals, whatever your interest it can be found on Bute. Please enquire for bank holiday prices and short stays.
