    This is a lovely cottage in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. Attractively decorated and equipped. You have to accept slow internet and being way down a one-track road, but the scenery is amazing and you are close to two of Bute's ancient sites, St Blane's Church and Dunagoil Fort. Rothesay is driveable in 15-20 min. Come here for views, history, and walks.

    Loved the cottage and its location, just what we wanted, there was only two of us so would suggest more cutlery and crockery as we washed up after every meal, also would recommend renewal of some of the pans apart from that can't wait to go back..

    We loved the cottage, from the first minute. Although the location is well off the beaten track, the beautiful location more than makes up for that. If a relaxing holiday, with the chance to do some stunning walks is what you are after, then this is the place for you. I'm an author and need peace and quiet to write, Shepherds Cottage provided that. A very productive time! Enjoyed every minute. Dennis & Pauline - Derby

    Wonderful location away from it all. Really interesting things to do and things to find in the countryside where the property is situated. Great place for biking walking or just relaxing. Very friendly and helpful hosts who farm the most beautiful sheep and cows in Scotland. The house is very clean and modern but also old worldly and cosy and includes a lovely kitchen that has everything someone who loves to cook would need.

    We just wanted to get away from it all, we couldn't have chosen a better place, the owners of the cottage were there if you needed them but left you alone when you didn't. The peace and tranquility of the place was astonishing, if your looking for that kind of holiday this is the place for you. Our dog had the run of the garden which was fully enclosed so we had no worries of her getting out, needless to say the dog enjoyed it as well, being a bassethound she is seldom of the leash but here at the cottage and a couple of beaches we found she was free to investigate every nook and cranny. Beautiful island, nice people, lovely cottage. And yes I would definitely go again.
