Description

A grand waterside venue for special occasions and corporate away days with abundant outdoor activities and places to see.

Ideal for large family gatherings and celebrations, this spacious, detached holiday house on the Isle of Bute was previously a hotel and occupies a prime position on the water’s edge, with spectacular views of the sea and the surrounding islands, showing the west of Scotland at its very best. If you can drag yourself away from the mesmerising views from the windows of St Blanes House, then there is plenty to do on the Isle of Bute. The island has been named as one of National Geographics ’Top10’ global adventure trips. There are many breathtaking scenic walks: the West Island Way Walk starts in the same village and the Kelspoke Trail meanders behind the house over the heather covered hills and takes in the glorious sea views.
There are three golf courses on the island, cycle tracks, horse riding, kayaking and lots of wildlife to see. For those interested in fishing, the inland lochs are popular with anglers for coarse and game fishing. Loch Fad offers anglers an opportunity to fish for rainbow trout while those with a passion for sea angling are spoilt for choice. Close by is Mount Stuart House, an extravagantly decorated stately home. It is said to contain more marble than any other building in the British Isles and has become a popular location for wealthy celebrity weddings including Stella McCartney and JB Gill from the band JLS.
A few miles away is the island’s main town of Rothesay, a traditional Victorian seaside resort which has managed to maintain its grand architecture. It still has its ancient castle, built to fend off the Vikings, and a museum. From Rothesay harbour trips can be taken around the islands on the Waverley, the last sea-going paddle steamer ship in the world. Further along the coast is the pretty harbour town of Port Bannatyne. There are also other sites such as St Blanes Chapel and Ascog Fernery to be found. The island attracts many annual festivals including the Jazz Festival in May, T in the Port in June, ButeFest, for music and food in July, the Bute Highland Games in August and the Baird Festival of Flight in September to mark the first ’All Scottish, heavier than air, powered flight in 1910’, just a few years after the Wright brothers first flight in France. At the north end of the Isle of Bute is a wee car ferry that provides easy access to the Cowal Peninsula and another way onto the mainland for those wishing to explore the Highlands of Scotland.
The house is located in the small village of Kilchattan Bay, it has a glorious sweeping sandy beach where children and dogs can run freely. A small stone pier near the house is suitable for launching small boats and jet skis into the beautiful clear sea. It has a post office and a pub with good food, 1 mile away (they run a free courtesy mini bus). St Blanes House aims to be one of the best self-catering venues for family get togetherness, corporate away days, weddings or parties in Scotland. It has a large games room with a table tennis table, pool table, darts board, lots of toys and board games etc. In the living room is a selection of musical equipment, drum kit, guitars, microphones, amplifier, keyboard, trumpet, karaoke machine and even flashing lights. The dining room has hosted many weddings in the past when it was a hotel. Weddings can be performed by prior arrangement with the local registry officer and catering can be organised. All the bedrooms are themed to add a bit of fun and interest to your stay. You can arrange for a dog walker and cleaner (at cost) to visit during your stay to ensure everyone has a chance to relax! Beach 25 yards. Shop 150 yards, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We had such a fantastic time in this brilliant house. Loads of space, games and equipment. The bar was just so much fun for a wee birthday cocktail party, and we made full use of the instruments too.

    Celebrated 50 th birthday with family.The owner Helen is fantastic, giving you loads of detailed info before hand and had arranged a welcome / birthday hamper which i thought was a lovely touch.My son had left a work folder which they very kindly posted down to us.Fantastic family house, well equipped to cater for the amount it sleeps. Garden area great and was enjoyed by all. The beach opposite was great for crabbing , sandy bits further round the coast, 2-5 mins walk. The bedrooms were extremely grand and once in and the door shut you couldn't hear anything going on in the rest of the house. Bar area was a hit enjoyed by the young to the old. The pub at the end of the road is 5* food and very helpful and friendly staff,( minibus collected us :)).If your wanting a peaceful getaway , no hussle or bustle of everyday life in beautiful scenery, then this is for you or on the other hand a place to party then it fits that bill as well.Big Thumbs up.

    Absolutely ideal place for our 2 yearly family gathering. So very well equipt, very comfortable, wonderful attention to details in all the rooms. All the children catered for no matter the weather with bikes, garden, goals to indoor pursuits (if the weather isn't kind) like art and crafts. The bar area is such an addition. A wonderful place and we appreciated all of it.

    The pictures on the web do not do this magnificent house justice. It has everything and more that you need for your stay. Immaculately clean and very well maintained considering the age of the house. We can't wait to visit again.

    St Blanes is a wonderful place. We had a great family reunion there. The house is very comfortable. The views to the front are spectacular. The house is very well equipped and has been tastefully restored. An ideal venue for a holiday.

    St. Blanes House is a fabulous property in a stunning location. The house has everything you could possibly need for a wonderful holiday. The owners have thought of just about everything. The rooms are amazing and the whole house is very comfortable. It's very relaxed and relaxing, without being so pristine that the family, kids and dogs could run around, play and enjoy everything without worrying about ruining the house. We had a wonderful holiday and couldn't have asked for better accommodation or location.
