Hilton Farm is a beautifully reconstructed farm steading, built of stone and slate over two storeys, and completed in 1999. Features include a custom-built Mahogany spiral staircase and a hand-painted feature wall in the hallway.

The accommodation has an open plan sitting room on the first floor, with great views out to sea and a fine open fire. A large dining kitchen occupies the ground floor, as does the snug and the house offers four bedrooms, two of which are the master suite and the guest suite, plus a family bathroom.

Outside the grounds are beautifully maintained. Mainly laid to lawn they are surrounded by palm trees, fruit trees and the extensive stone terracing suitable for planting shrubs and flowers, while the sheltered central courtyard is perfect for entertaining on a grand scale.

Hilton Farm is situated on the Isle of Bute in Argyll and Bute. The capital of Bute (and the ferry terminal) Rothesay is just three miles, and Glasgow 43 miles (by ferry).
