Your Accommodation:

Glenburn Hotel - 3 Star

Set in a prime position atop terraced gardens, The Glenburn Hotel commands fabulous views overlooking Rothesay Bay and the Cowal Peninsula. This grand and elegant 3 star hotel on the Isle of Bute was originally constructed in 1892 as a hydrotherapy retreat. Each of the bedrooms are spread over 20 to 30 square metres to ensure a comfortable stay and some offer views of Rothesay Bay. Relax with a drink in the welcoming bar or enjoy the hotel’s terrace, which is the ideal spot to soak up the stunning views across Rothesay and Cowal.

We follow the coast road around the tip of the loch, turning south to the lovely little white washed town of Inverary. There will be time for a look around and a bite to eat before our afternoon visit to the magnificent, unique and fascinating Inverary Castle, the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll. Later, we retrace our steps to Colintrave and the ferry back across to Bute.

Set in 300 acres of landscape and woodlands, the house is known as Britain’s most spectacular Victorian Gothic House. It is the architectural fantasy of the 3rd Marquis of Bute. Set 5 miles south from Rothesay, the house and grounds offer the visitor much to see. From here we return to our hotel with time to relax before dinner and a final evening of entertainment.
