About the local area

& Gardens. The island is ideal for gentle cycling. To the North, at Kennacraig (5 miles), the ferry departs for Islay, famous for its Malt Whisky distilleries. Then to the East, at Claonaig, the ferry travels to Arran. The Kintyre Peninsula is steeped in history and locally at Clachan, there are ancient monuments - standing stones, a burial ground and an Iron Age fort.  Also the famous Kilmartin Glen is less than one hour’s drive away.  The area is great for golfing as Machrihanish has two 18-hole golf courses, which are part of the “Great Scottish Links Collection”.  The first hole on one course requires the opening shot to carry over the Atlantic!   For walking enthusiast the Kintyre Way provides a great long distance walk (87 miles) from Tarbert in the north, to Danaverty Bay in the south. Kintyre really has the feel of an island without leaving the mainland.
