About Flora Boyd

I was a farmer. Kildavannan Farm Cottage which was the old gamekeepers cottage was purchased from the Bute Estate and completely rebuilt for my mother and fathers retirement in 1982. In 2013 my partner Flora and I refurbished the main cottage adding a new sun lounge. We then demolished and rebuilt what was the old garage to create a luxurious well appointed holiday cottage called Ettrick Cottage. We want our guests to share the fantastic location and stunning views that Ettrick Cottage has to offer.

Flora Boyd purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Flora Boyd chose Isle of Bute

This property is ideal for a luxurious holiday with stunning views across the sea to the two islands of Inchmarnock and Arran with Mull of Kintyre in the background. It is easily accessible being one hour from Glasgow and two hours if you are flying from London.

What makes this cottage unique

The location, the views, the access to hill walking, wildlife, cycling, fishing, heritage and three amazing golf courses . It is newly build to the highest environmental standards. Its high levels of insulation and underfloor heating ensures it is warm and cosy at all times.Ideal for chilling out or a romantic getaway.

There are lots to do locally on the island of Bute but it is a great base access via the 5 minute ferry crossing to the wider Cowal and Argyll tourist attractions such as Inverary Castle and Benmore Gardens.
