The cottage is a detached bungalow situated within the grounds next to the hotel. The house is of cream coloured painted render finish under a tiled roof and provides generous accommodation.

The cottage is currently used as dedicated owners’ accommodation although if the owners are living ‘off site’ then the house could easily increase the business enterprise by being used as holiday letting accommodation with catering provided from the hotel.

Abbots Brae Hotel is situated at West Bay which is just to the south of the popular Cowal peninsula tourist destination of Dunoon.

The hotel and owners house enjoy an elevated coastal and woodland situation from which both enjoy fine easterly seascape views out across the firth of Clyde towards Gourock.
