Feolin is situated on the island of Bute on the west of Scotland. The property is located about 1.5 miles to the north of Rothesay which is the main capital town of the island of Bute.
The house is in an excellent location on a promontory between Ardbeg and Port Bannatyne and it is set on level, mature gardens. Adjacent to the house is a level grass promenade and from its fine coastal position there are uninterrupted, spectacular and often dramatic views to Loch Striven, the Kyles of Bute, the Firth of Clyde and the mountains and glens of the west of Scotland.
Rothesay, which is 1.5 miles to the south, has thriving shopping, leisure and educational facilities including a larger sized Co-op. Caledonian MacBrayne operates a frequent ferry service from Rothesay to Wemyss Bay, which has direct rail links to Glasgow. A second ferry service runs between Rhubodach on the northern side of Bute to Colintraive giving short crossing access to the mainland, Argyll and the West Highlands.
The two nearest airports are Glasgow and Prestwick, which are a circa 40 and 50 minutes drive respectively in normal driving conditions from Wemyss Bay.
Rothesay has an 18 hole golf course enjoying outstanding views of the Firth of Clyde and Arran. Smaller courses are at Port Bannatyne and Kingarth. Bute is an area of significant natural beauty and mild climate, with many opportunities for coastal and hill walking and mountain biking. Fresh water and sea fishing are available, and there are shooting and stalking opportunities. The island has its own grass airstrip for light aircraft and microlights.
The area is notable for its sailing on the famous Kyles of Bute, which is a National Scenic Area. Tighnabruaich and Colintraive to the north, and the Crinan Canal and Tarbert to the West, are centres of lively sailing activity throughout the season. There are marinas, sheltered moorings, chandlery and boating services in Rothesay and Port Bannatyne.
From Glasgow, travel west on the M8 to Greenock, and then continue on the A78 to Wemyss Bay. Take the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry to Rothesay circa (35 minutes). On arrival at Rothesay, disembark then turn right onto the A844 proceeding along the coast in a northerly direction for about 1.4 miles then bear easy right onto Marine Place, continue for a further 0.3 miles to find Feolin on the left hand side immediately after the junction with Wyndham Road.
