“Brilliant again!”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Third time staying here! It is so comfortable and feels like home except the views are amazing! The kitchen is especially well equipped with working dishwasher, microwave etc tho the amount of cooking we did was minimal as there are plenty of good eateries on Bute including a small cafe and shop!
We walked out to the lighthouse - good boots needed for that - down to Dunagoil and Scalpsie Bay and of course waded across the bay in our wellies.
The local community ran a Barbeque which served delicious burgers soup n salad!
We could get a good mobile signal on O2 and could also access data on 3G THere are several WIFI hotspots in Rothsay town as well.
We are looking forward to returning for a FOURTH time.

“Lovely comfortable well equipped flat”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Much more than the usual holiday flat.Fantastic views,great location. We had a really relaxed week. Only possible downside is not really suitable for people with mobility issues due to the stairs to get up to the flat

“Thoroughly well presented holiday flat. Superb!”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have just returned from our week stay at Lilybank. Could not recommend it highly enough! We came to Kilchatten Bay especially as my wife used to holiday there with her Grandparents when she was young. A delightful flat with amazing views over the Bay itself. We had everything we could have wanted to hand. Child friendly accommodation too as we had our young daughter (4yrs) and son (21 mths) with us. My wife very much enjoyed her stay also and thought that it was a very warm and cosy flat and believe me it's the warmth that keeps her happy!
Thank you and we hope to be back again next year.
Kind regards
Stuart

“Superb stay at beautiful coastal location”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We've just returned from 5 nights at Lilybank. It is a lovely top floor flat looking directly across Kilchattan Bay. It was so quiet and relaxing we can recommend it most highly. The owner was very helpful at all stages of the booking and even provided us with travel advice to reach the accommodation. Thank you!

“Paradise on Bute”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have just returned from a fabulous fortnight in Lilybank and cannot recommend it highly enough. The flat is beautifully situated right on the water's edge; the views are incredible and the sunrise on the water every morning takes your breath away. The flat is the most comfortable holiday let we have ever stayed in - it was equipped with everything we needed, and more. Everyone in the village is very friendly and helpful, and the little village shop and tearoom provide all your basic needs. In addition, there is a pub/hotel in the next village which serves wonderful food. There is so much to do on the island - we spent 2 weeks exploring and still did not manage to do everything. The beaches on the island are clean and beautiful and there are many varied and interesting walks. Bute is a little known paradise, and if you wish to expore it, we would certainly recommend staying at Lilybank.
