Picture-perfect holidays at Kames Hotel

The Kames Hotel is a historic building bursting with character and offering a unique experience in a spectacular part of the world. Situated at the water’s edge, overlooking the magnificent Kyles of Bute on the Cowal Peninsula, this area of outstanding natural beauty will leave you breathless. 


Our rooms are individual, quirky and charming. Full of original furniture and features, they are all tastefully decorated and are regularly updated to add contemporary style and comfort. 


Our food is fresh, unpretentious, and home-made using produce sourced from the best local suppliers. Try locally caught fish and shellfish, fine Scotch beef or wild venison from the surrounding hills, all in the comfort of our elegant restaurant overlooking the water. Finish up with one of our fine malt whiskeys - perfect after a busy day of exploring.

If you are sailing through the Kyles, we are the first choice for sea goers and offer 15 moorings free of charge to patrons. If you fancy earning your sea legs, we're close to the local sailing school, or we can arrange a boat trip on the Morag, a retired fishing vessel. We are only a short walk away from the local Kyles of Bute Golf course with its amazing views of the Kyles, Arran and Loch Fyne. The spectacular awaits, all you need to do is book
