We call it Sweetview

Book your visit and you’ll see why

it couldn’t be called anything else

Sweetview is a unique first-floor flat in peaceful Kilchattan Bay on the beautiful Scottish island of Bute, offering breathtaking views across the Firth of Clyde.


Beautifully designed to capture all the vintage warmth and charm of a traditional seaside holiday, Sweetview balances charmingly retro style with all the mod cons you’d expect, including wi-fi and Freeview TV.

The flat has been freshly decorated throughout and furnished in vintage style reminiscent of the classic era of British seaside holidays. Situated in tranquil and scenic Kilchattan Bay, it’s the perfect base for a visit to Scotland’s glorious Isle of Bute. Relax amid the flat’s carefully chosen vintage furniture and décor, and enjoy outstanding views from the living room’s panoramic bay window – easily the finest views across the Firth in the whole village.

Whether you’re visiting to sight-see, cycle, walk or simply unwind on one of the gems of Scotland’s west coast, Sweetview is the ideal location. Located just 15 minutes from Rothesay’s ferry port, the flat is on the first floor of a traditional tenement building, with well-kept communal gardens to the rear.

Visitors can eat at some of Bute’s fine restaurants and cafes – the outstanding Kingarth Hotel and Restaurant is just a five-minute drive away, or cook for themselves in Sweetview’s fully-appointed kitchen, which also features a dishwasher, washing machine, Nespresso coffee machine, electric kettle and toaster.

Up to two well-behaved dogs welcome.

This is a unique one-bedroom, first-floor flat in peaceful Kilchattan Bay on the beautiful Scottish island of Bute.

Relax amid the flat’s carefully chosen vintage furniture and décor, and enjoy glorious views from the living room’s panoramic bay window.

Sweetview is on the first floor of a traditional tenement building. Entry to the tenement is up a single step, with access to the flat via two flights of stairs. Please bear this in mind if you have any mobility issues.

Sweetview’s bright and spacious entrance hallway provides access to all rooms, as well as a large storage cupboard for boots and coats when the day’s travels are at an end. In the hall, visitors will also find a large chest of drawers housing essential items such as a hairdryer, first aid kit, everyday medicines and even hot water bottles for those bracing winter nights. The large mirror means you can make sure you look your best – and don’t have to miss the spectacular sea views from the living room.

With a sumptuously comfortable double bed decked out in high-quality linens, the bedroom is the haven at the heart of Sweetview, the perfect place to rest, relax and plot the next day’s adventures. Draw back the floor-length blackout curtains, and the view out to Kilchattan Bay and across the Firth of Clyde will simply take your breath away.
Freshly decorated in crisp white, the room features a storage heater, chest of drawers, two bedside tables, and clothes rack.

Boasting a full-length bath, sink, WC and newly-installed Triton shower, the bathroom also includes a wall-mounted infra-red heater to make sure you stay warm and cosy whatever the weather. Sweetview’s welcome pack includes bathroom essentials including samples of soap, shampoo and conditioner to get your holiday off to a cracking clean start.

With two large windows looking out onto the immaculately-kept shared rear garden, Sweetview’s spacious kitchen diner is bright, warm and welcoming. It’s also fully equipped to give you all the comfort and convenience of home during your getaway and, behind discrete folding doors, includes a neat bed recess boasting bunk beds kitted out with top-quality bed linens.
The kitchen’s facilities include electric cooker with oven and ceramic hob, Nespresso machine and cafetiere, toaster, kettle, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer. Visitors can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at the distinctively retro diner-style table, complete with four chairs.

The main feature of the lounge may be the large bay window offering unparallelled and spectacular views of Kilchattan Bay and the Firth of Clyde, but this room has plenty more to offer, such as a working fireplace and shelves packed with a carefully chosen selection of books, games, DVDs and Blu-Rays (many with a nostalgic flavour in keeping with the flat’s retro theme). There’s even an extensive collection of vintage ViewMaster 3D reels to enjoy!
Sink into the two beautiful – and comfortable – vintage armchairs or the two-seater pull-out sofa bed while you soak in that spectacular view – or keep up with the outside world thanks to free wi fi and a flat-screen TV with a wide range of Freeview channels.
