20 High Road is situated on the island of Bute on the west of Scotland. The property is located about 2 miles to the north of Rothesay in the ribbon settlement of Port Bannatyne.
The house is in an excellent location on a fine coastal situation in Port Bannatyne and it is set on level, mature and easily managed gardens. Adjacent to the house is the sheltered anchorage of Port Bannatyne Bay and the house enjoys fine uninterrupted, spectacular and often dramatic views to Loch Striven, the east Kyles of Bute, the Firth of Clyde and the mountains and glens of the west of Scotland.
Rothesay, which is 2.5 miles to the south, is the capital and main town of the island of Bute. It has thriving shopping, leisure and educational facilities including a larger sized Co-op. Caledonian MacBrayne operate 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 immediately on the doorstep at Port Bannatyne and Rothesay.
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 1.9 miles to find 20 High Road on the right hand side.
