The Isle of Bute is possibly named from ‘bót’, the Old Irish word for fire.
Spark up today’s Big Deal and kindle a little romance with a two night break at the gorgeous Munro’s B&B on the Isle of Bute.
An autumnal mini-break on Scotland’s stunning West Coast is the ideal mood booster in the long haul to the festive period.
There is even the option to add on a festive bread making class – perfect for anyone who has been fired up by the Great British Bake Off.
Bread & breakfast
The baking hot offer is for two people to enjoy a two night stay with full Scottish breakfast at Munro’s boutique B&B on the beautiful Isle of Bute.
Option two is to add on a one day bread making class at the Bute Bread School which operates from Munro’s B&B.
Taking place on Saturdays and Wednesdays, the bread class runs from 11am until 4pm and includes a light lunch, tea and coffee plus apprentice bakers can take home any bread made.
Also included is a set of really useful notes with bread recipes to take home and master. Paul Hollywood had better start looking over his shoulder.
Bread making classes are valid for Fri and Tuesday check-ins only.
Munro’s is a comfortable, boutique B&B that sits on a hill near the village of Ardbeg on Bute.
A friendly, family-run home with stunning views across Rothesay Bay, the B&B has an acre of beautiful gardens. On fine mornings, you can have your breakfast on the terrace and you may even spot a fish in the lily-pond.
All of Munro’s six, stylishly decorated rooms are ensuite – one with a whirlpool bath – and they also feature flat screen TVs, wireless broadband access, tea and coffee making facilities, underfloor heating in the bathrooms and luxury shower gel and hand soap.
The larger sea view rooms are available on a first come, first served basis. Twin and double rooms are available.
Munro’s has wowed lots of previous guests and it scores a top five stars on TripAdvisor. This is what a couple of recent visitors had to say:
‘Could not fault. This was such a great place to stay. From the very first warm welcome and introduction to the final farewell, we thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend here. Most helpful and knowledgeable hosts; spacious rooms; views over the water with always something to watch; filling tasty breakfasts with a buffet including fruits and separate cooked choices; daily fresh and often still warm bread. When on Bute we would suggest there is no need to consider staying anywhere else.’
‘Terrific place. Stayed for three nights in August 2013. Great hosts, great room, great breakfast. Don’t let the fact that it’s not directly downtown deter you. Like all the other reviews say, the location is great with a terrific view. A must-stay if you are going to Bute.’
