The Isle of Bute is a popular visitor destination and is attractive for anyone wishing to reside in a waterside location with ample facilities and amenities. Living on Bute provides the best of both worlds for anyone seeking a more tranquil lifestyle but with the benefit of excellent transport links allowing for those that may need to commute, with Glasgow being approximately 1hr 20 mins journey time via ferry and train and Glasgow airport offering flights throughout Britain and Europe. The area benefits from three excellent primary schools and a secondary campus.
Tourism plays a big part in the local economy and the island plays host to a number of hotels, bars, restaurants, beaches, golf clubs and cinema. Other attractions include Rothesay Castle, Mount Stuart, Rothesay Harbour and the nearby Port Bannatyne Marina.
4 Ettrickdale Road is perfectly positioned as it is easily accessible from both ferry ports on the island. Three miles from the main port, Rothesay (to Wemyss Bay), and five miles from the smaller Rhubodach (to Colintraive) ferry. On exiting the pier at Rothesay turn right and follow the promenade to Port Bannatyne; pass the marina and sweep round the bay to the small cluster of houses. Turn up the road and turn left. The property is the house at the back right corner of the cul-de-sac. From Rhubodach turn left and follow the country road until you reach the property.
