Munro’s is situated on the Isle of Bute, just 1.5 hrs from Glasgow by car and ferry (32 miles if you’re a crow!). The island is the perfect getaway location for relaxation, walks on beaches, cycling on quiet roads or visits to historic locations. The wonderful Mount Stuart house, where Stella McCartney was married, is well worth a visit.
If you enjoy golf there are are 3 courses on the island and fly fishing for rainbow and brown trout is available for enthusiasts.
The house is a perfect location for a family or group of friends to relax and enjoy each other’s company.

The well equipped kitchen is a lovely space for socialising with a log burner in the centre and a 12 seater table at one end.

Andy and Joan were superb hosts – they made our family trip to Rothesay incredibly stress free and allowed us to enjoy every minute. The house itself is extremely spacious and fitted all 10 of us – plus a newborn – easily. The entire house was immaculately presented and we all immediately felt at home here. The kitchen and living area have the most beautiful wood burners that kept us and the house toasty all weekend. The house is a 5 minute drive along the road to the main street in Rothesay which boasts plenty of pubs and shops for all the necessities. The kitchen facilities were fabulous and made cooking for 10 a simple job. Thank you again to Andy and Joan for being such brilliant hosts, we would return here in a heartbeat.

A lovely few days spent in Andy & Joan’s fantastic house on the Isle of Bute. The house was perfect for our needs, with plenty of space and character, and conveniently located for all that the island has to offer. Andy & Joan were great hosts and gave us some fab tips on how best to enjoy the island, a particular favourite was the Bute Microbrewery and their awesome stone baked pizzas. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful time we had at Munro’s. We booked the whole place out for a couple of nights for a wedding we attended. Joan and Andy made us so very welcome and were so accommodating and went out of their way to ensure we had a great stay.
They put on a buffet dinner for us the night before the wedding and allowed us to take over the place the next morning with a hairdresser and make up artist whilst we got ready.
munro’s is not too far from the town of Rothesay and has spectacular views out over the bay.
I was lucky to get the suite downstairs which is a beautiful room with those views. Shower facility was excellent.
Can’t recommend enough! Especially if you’re looking for somewhere for a group of you to stay.

Just back from a weekend at the Munro’s and it exceeded all expectations. The house is truly amazing and easily catered for 13 of us. The cinema and toy room also helped to keep the kids entertained the whole weekend which was an added bonus. We will definitely be back! Xxx
