Kames Castle Cottages are nestled between beautiful Scottish countryside and the tranquil Kames Bay.

Our seven self-catering cottages are located within 20 acres of private grounds.  The cottages sleep from 2 to 9 guests.  We welcome bookings for each of the individual cottages or bookings for the entire estate which can accommodate 34 guests in total.  These comfortable cottages have all necessary amenities, including free WiFi and cosy log burners.  Guests are invited to explore the Victorian walled garden and glasshouse, forested area and large lawns.  Dogs are welcome in four of the courtyard cottages.  With an all-weather tennis court, croquet in the walled garden and small putting green, Kames Castle Cottages are perfect for couples, families or larger groups looking for a relaxing getaway in a unique location. 



L’histoire dit que le Roi des Écossais, Robert le Bruce, a donné Kames à la famille Bannatyne au XIVème siècle. Ainsi, Kames Estate a une longue et intéressante histoire et toutes les propriétés de Kames sont répertoriées par Historic Scotland. Au centre du domaine on se trouve l'impressionnant tour du XIVème siècle, Kames Castle.

Au cours des années passées les chalets ont été utilisés de diverses manières, comme des pavillons de chasse pour le Marquess de Bute et des logements pour les nombreux jardiniers qui ont entretenu le jardin clos et les terrains environnants au XVIIIème siècle. Plus récemment, les chalets ont été modernisés et en 2018, ils ont tous été rénovés. Les 7 chalets actuellement disponibles à la location peuvent accueillir entre 2 et 9 personnes.

Les chalets sont situés dans 20 hectares de jardins privés et de bois. Niché à côté de la magnifique côte de Kames Bay, le domaine offre une vue magnifique sur la mer et les collines voisines. Les visiteurs peuvent donc profiter de beaucoup d'espace dans un air écossais merveilleusement propre.

Kames a la chance d'attirer une faune abondante. Les chevreuils, les hiboux, les faisans sont des visiteurs fréquents.

The Cottages

In years gone by the cottages have seen various uses, such as hunting lodges for the Marquess of Bute and accommodation for the many gardeners who looked after the walled garden. The seven self-catering cottages that are currently available for rent provide modern and comfortable accommodation and can sleep between two and nine guests.
