About Helen

Helen and Allison are mother and daughter, we live on the island and have recently purchased Bogany Cottage. We have really enjoyed spending time and effort furnishing it to a very high standard. We shall be managing the holiday lettings ourselves and will be on hand to make sure that our clients have a holiday to remember.

Helen purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Helen chose Scotland

We fell in love with everything about the cottage from its location to the lay- out internally. The location is great, quiet and within easy walking distance of the centre of Rothesay. The views are excellent and it is well situated for exploring the island.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is warm and cosy. The under-floor heating is very efficient with individual thermostats in every room, there is also the advantage of the log burner. The combined sitting room and kitchen, with vaulted ceiling, make this a very sociable arrangement. Good sized, fully enclosed garden is excellent for outside dining in the summer and very child friendly. There is ample private parking for several cars.

Lovely, cosy, comfortable cottage with beautiful views and stunning sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage, which is very comfortable for a family of four. The garden was ideal for the dog to run about in, as was the beach at the bottom of the road. The cottage is in a great location with superb views across the bay. It's pleasant 10-minute walk to the town centre.

Restful few days

We enjoyed our stay very much, the cottage is lovely. The gates proved very challenging.

Were did wonder why we didn't have a welcome pack of any kind.

Lovely homely cottage with gorgeous views and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cottage, 2 minutes away from the ferry, very easy to find. Lovely big gardens for the kids and dog to run around in with beautiful views of the loch. Very warm and cosy and would definitely go back to the cottage when we return to Bute.

We stayed at Bogany Cottage between Christmas and New Year 2016. My husband, me and our two cocker spaniels were very happy with the facilities, the cottage was clean and had everything you could need, even pods for the coffee machine! The dogs certainly made use of the enclosed garden. The only teeny tiny fault (and this only affected us as we have two dogs) was that to get to the garden we had to put them on their leads as access from the cottage was across the driveway and at 7am I didn't fancy risking them taking off on an adventure out of the driveway and down the road! But that's just a minor thing, and not really an issue if you a) don't have dogs b) do have dogs but they are very obedient!

We absolutely loved the underfloor heating and the wood burner, and the cottage was close to the town (a 10 minute walk). A lovely, quiet, friendly island with plenty of walks, breath taking scenery and of course it helped that we had unseasonally good weather.

I would recommend Bogany Cottage, with it's quick communication from the owners and thoughtful finishing touches.
