This spacious, detached cottage, surrounded by open countryside, enjoys distant views over the sea to the islands of Jura and Islay. Kintyre boasts wonderful stretches of secluded beach and coastal walks (with coves and rockpools, ideal for children), and the fascinating little island of Davaar with its lighthouse, cave painting and wild goats which can be reached on foot at low tide. There are marvellous coastal and woodland walks where seals, otters and a variety of birds can be seen, as well as in the hills, where golden eagles soar. Local activities include surfing, sea fishing, horse trekking, mountain biking and island hopping to Gigha, Islay and Arran. Kintyre is home to five golf courses - the most famous is the championship course at Macrihanish with its stunning and infamous first hole. There are a further two 18-hole golf courses - Southend and Machrihanish Dunes and two excellent nine-hole courses in Carradale and Tarbet. Campbeltown has supermarkets, shops, restaurants and leisure centre (with swimming pool, gym, sauna and sun beds). In its day, Campbeltown had over 30 whisky distilleries. Today only two survive – Glen Scotia and Springbank, with the latter offering tours by appointment. Further attractions in Campbeltown include the Campbeltown Cross, the quaint Art Deco cinema, a birds of prey centre, a museum, the Linda McCartney Memorial Garden and the Mull Lighthouse. Ferries are close by for trips to Islay and Jura. There is a seasonal ferry to Ayrshire and the ferry from Tarbert takes you to Portavadie and the Cowal Peninsula, Argyll’s Secret Coast.
