Kames

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.
