Beside the Bay is a compact apartment, on the ground floor, with beautiful views out to Kames Bay and the hills beyond. It sleeps a couple, and we welcome one dog in this apartment. Literally right across the road from the safe and gently sloping dog friendly beach at Kames Bay, the apartment is part of a listed building, and used to house a general grocer's shop when the two villages of Kirkton and Kames were separate entities, in the early 19th century. Just a few minutes walk to the cafes, shops and pubs of Millport, the only town on the island, yet also a few minutes walk from the walking paths which cross the island, making it such a haven for nature lovers, cyclists, and dog walkers alike.

The apartment is new to the rental market , having been completely stripped back and renovated during 2019, with a cosy log burner, an en suite shower room ( please note this is the only bathroom ) and a brand new kitchen with two ring hob and full size oven. The apartment has a shared garden to the back of the property, but dog owners should be aware that there's no gate, so dogs must be kept on a lead as you exit the apartment. More

This flat has a fab location with a sea view from the living room. It was really well presented, and we loved the features. The awful weather gave us a good excuse to relax with the log burner. We had an amazing weekend, cold wet...More

About the neighbourhood
The Bay apartment is situated on the main street of the only town on the island of Cumbrae. It benefits from a lovely sea view from its front window, across the road to Kames Bay. Only a few minutes walk from shops, cafes etc , and also from beautiful walks round the coast of this tiny Isle.
Getting around
A bus meets every ferry. It will bring you into the town, and the bus stop is only a few moments walk from the apartment.
