This is an ancient stone-built village around a protected bay on the Isle of Bute which lies off the coast of Argyll in Scotland. One a busy fishing community there are now more pleasure yachts than working fishing craft, but it still lands regular supplies of crayfish (langoustines) which are sent by air freight to Paris.
At one end of the village is Kames Castle which hires out cottages in its estate to holiday makers. Then there is a field for football, kids' playground and a pitch for playing the French game of Petanque. The Boules may be hired at The small Post Office which also doubles as the village shop and coffee house. There are two pubs and a cafe which serves things with chips. Then there is The Port Royal Hotel which is the old village inn dating from 1725 A.D. Run by a Russian family for over ten years they provide budget accommodation in four guestrooms, and in their Russian Tavern serve the local seafood and fine Russian dishes. The golfcourse lies behind the village.
