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 Isle of Bute

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.

Great little cottage, fantastic location close to town, great views, beachfront a stones throw away.

  • 4 of 5

Ideal for a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of working life, only a 30 minute ferry ride to peace and tranquility. Took our 3 dogs for their first holiday of 2018, plenty of walks and great scenery. Shops and local amenities only a 10 minute walk away, close to the ferry and easy to find. House very clean and tidy, beautiful kitchen / diner / living room, 2 great bedrooms and underfloor heating makes it a cosy return in the cold winter months.. A great base to visit the area via the ferry at the west of the island if you fancy a few days out or just chill with a book and the view across the bay. We would definitely return again..

Congratulations you have found a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I got the cottage for a few days away for a birthday with the family, its a beautiful cottage extremely well kept. Had a lovely time and had some lovely meals here great fishmongers and butchers in the town, there are the basic utensils but plenty to make a great meal. The living and kitchen area is very relaxing and all of the appliances are easy to use. Helen the owner was there to meet and greet to show how everything worked and was available if needed. Its a great spot to explore the island and close enough to town to have places to eat drink shop if you want to stay closer. Couldn't have enjoyed the place more - would definitely book again - thanks Helen for letting us stay in this high standard accommodation. Toni

A great cottage with lovely views over the sea.

  • 4 of 5

Great stay in this lovely clean cottage. Kitchen and lounge is open plan so great with a family. Had everything you could need, except it would have been nice to have some drawers in the double bedroom as there wasn't really anywhere to store your clothes, but apart from that would highly recommend.

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.
