Roxburgh House is situated on Argyle Place in the Isle of Bute. From its prominent position on the front, the house commands fine views across Rothesay Bay. The Rothesay Bay waterscape is always lively with the coming and going of the Caledonian Macbrayne Ferry service to and from Wemyss Bay as well as the movement of pleasure boats and sailing yachts as they venture through the famous and highly scenic Kyles of Bute.
Rothesay town has thriving shopping, leisure and educational facilities including a larger sized Co-op. Caledonian MacBrayne operates a frequent ferry service to Wemyss Bay, which has direct rail links to Glasgow. A second ferry service runs between Rhubodach on the north of Bute to Colintraive giving access to Argyll and the West Highlands.
The two nearest airports are Glasgow and Prestwick, which are approximately 40 and 50 minutes drive respectively from Wemyss Bay.
Rothesay has an 18 hole golf course, from most of which there are 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.
Detached timber shed.
