The late Lord Richard Attenborough's holiday home on the Scottish island of Bute is now available to rent.

Groups of up to 10 can rent Rhubodach House on a self-catering basis for £900 to £1,700 a week, reports the Scottish Express.

Its neighbouring three-bedroomed cottage, still owned by his widow Sheila, is also up for hire at £500-£900 per week.





Attenborough bought the estate in 1988 and described it as "having the unmistakable feel of home".

He sold the surrounding forestry estate to a community buy-out group for £1.5 million in 2010.

The properties are being advertised to holidaymakers on Cottages4u.co.uk and holidaycottages.net.

According to the Daily Mail, Rhubodach House boasts 'stunning views' and has a master bedroom with brass four poster bed, a large living room and dining area with open fire and a Victorian bath.

The property also has a games room with a pool table, table tennis and darts board.

A sales brochure for the property reads: 'Rhubodach on the lovely Scottish Isle of Bute consists of The Farmhouse plus annex and Flora's Cottage, beautiful holiday properties available for self catering or managed self catering.

'With gorgeous accommodation surrounded by stunning scenery, overlooking the Kyles of Bute and for good measure set in a 28 acre nature reserve. Scotland at its finest and perfect for that stress free break.

'At Rhubodach there is a warm welcome waiting for you and we can offer various services such as cooking meals and clearing away afterwards.'
