An extremely bright, upper apartment with beautiful views over the Kyles of Bute.

This cosy wee flat lies on the top floor of an attractive, stone-built villa situated in the coastal village of Kames, by Tighnabruiach. The holiday flat is a blissful retreat, in walking distance of the local pub and convenience store.

In winter you can cosy up by the wood-burning stove & watch a movie, and the summer months call for a waterside stroll followed by lunch on the water outisde the Kames hotel pub.

The space
There is a cosy lounge space with wood-burning stove, sofa and dvd player (selection of dvds as well). This room features the breakfast bar with stunning views up the Kyles of Bute.

There is a small kitchenette with oven and stove, kettle and fridge/freezer.

There are two double bedrooms & one bathroom. Access to the bathroom is through the master bedroom.

Where you’ll be

Argyll and Bute Council, Scotland, United Kingdom

The views from the apartment are quite sensational. Once the escape for Glasgow City lawyers and teachers, Kames is now an artist's retreat and mooring point for keen sailors.

The Kames hotel is a 2 minute walking distance and offers food and drinks daily, with a great beer garden overlooking the Kyles of Bute. (Check their website and socials for their latest on live music events!)

The Tighnabruaich hotel is a 3 minute drive from the flat, where they do classic pub grub, drinks and pub quizzes.

The shop is 100 meters away and has everything you could possibly need for your stay; fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, cheese, snacks, milk, wine and spirits, as well as necessities such as logs for the wood burner, toothpaste and venison!

Kames has its own 9 Hole 'Parkland' Golf Course which is about three minutes from the apartment by car and within walking distance for those looking to extend their walk, carrying golf clubs even further.

Portavadie Marina & Spa is less than 10 minutes from Heathbank. This well-known resort has beautiful contemporary pools (including outdoor heated pool), saunas, steam rooms, cafes and health spa where you can book massages etc. The views from the pools are fabulous and this is a wonderful place to unwind before popping back to the apartment for a glass of wine by the woodburner.
