    This is a lovely cottage which has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The only negative I found was that the description advises there is Wifi at the cottage and there is none at all? This was one of my must have's when booking this cottage as my husband is recovering from an op at home and the idea was that I would still be on hand if needed. To make a call you have to go out passed the gate to the cottage and to pick up Wifi you needed to drive a couple of miles down the road. Otherwise it was lovely and the owners were very nice too.

    Lovely cosy cottage attached to the farmhouse of a working sheep and cattle farm, nestled among the hills at the southern tip of Bute. The cottage itself is spacious and well equipped with plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 Labradors (it sleeps 4 overall). The central heating kept everything nice and toasty warm. It had everything we needed and the utility room is very handy buffer zone for wet and muddy people and dogs! If you want somewhere to get away from it all then it's ideal.

    The kind of cottage that (in December, anyway!) instantly makes you want to eat cake, drink tea and take a nap. Peaceful, warm, inviting, with grand views to Arran. The walks from the front door are great and Janet and Brian very welcoming but non-intrusive. Shepherds Cottage is the best part of the Isle!

    Shepherds Cottage is ideally situated for some of the best walks and interesting areas of Bute. It is very well equipped , warm and cosy with a library of local information and other interesting books. Wonderful views of Arran and terrific sunsets, quiet and peaceful. Janet and Brian were very welcoming, and accessible had we had any problems ( which we didn’t) We couldn't fault It. Lovely week.
