Be & Breathe Ltd
The Be & Breathe Retreat house is found on the Isle of Bute, one of Scotland’s most accessible islands. Located only 90 minutes from the city of Glasgow and situated in the Firth of Clyde, it is easily reachable by a regular ferry service from Wemyss Bay. There are regular train services to Weymss Bay from both Glasgow Central station and Paisley Gilmour Street Station (the town of Paisley is 10 minutes from Glasgow International Airport).
The ferry crossing over to the island takes 35 minutes and with sailings approximately every 45 minutes at peak times. No booking is required, however you may need to be ready to board with your tickets at least 10 minutes in advance. You can find a detailed timetable and further information by visiting the Caledonian MacBrayne website.
The House is a 5 minute car journey from the Ferry Terminal, and there are several taxi services or buses available if you are travelling on foot (map below). On leaving the ferry, turn left and travel along the coast road. When you reach Albany Road, turn right up this road and follow it to the top to the junction of Crichton Road. Go straight on and Silverknowe House is on the right (there are stone lions on the gate posts).
Bute itself also has a rich history that you can enjoy whilst you stay. There are many things to see and do on the island from seasonal events, walking, golfing, fishing, horse-riding, cycling, music, or simply taking in the beautiful scenery. The Visitor Centre is located within the Esplanade gardens in the town centre and is open 7 days a week. The island is 15 miles long by 4 miles wide and is divided in the middle by the Highland Boundary Fault line. The island has both low-lying areas and hill areas, ancient woodland and many beaches both sandy and rocky.
