Description

With wonderful views across the rolling countryside and the sea to Northern Ireland, this detached farmhouse on a working sheep and arable farm is in a wonderful location for exploring the Mull of Kintyre. Known for its unspoilt beauty, and sometimes blustery conditions, the Kintyre Peninsula boasts five superb golf courses, miles of stunning white sandy beaches, historic sites and castle ruins. The Kintyre Way runs along the rocky coastline, making it extremely popular with walkers and cyclists, whilst an abundance of wildlife allows dolphins, otters, seals and a myriad of birdlife to be spotted. Machrihanish beach is known for some of the best wind surfing in the UK, and for enthusiasts, equipment hire and tuition are available locally. The magical islands of Islay, Jura, Gigha and Arran are all easily accessible by ferry from nearby ferry ports and make for some truly memorable days out. Campbeltown Heritage Centre offers the opportunity to have a look at the town’s history and the people that lived and worked here, or choose from one of the three distilleries to sample a wee dram of whisky! Campbeltown also has a variety of shops, leisure centre, cinema and a good selection of bars and restaurants. Beach 6 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

About the local area

As you travel through Argyll, highland Scotland merges with the Scottish lowlands. In the north of the region is the bustling fishing port of Oban. Surrounded by the sweeping mountains of Lorn this is the ideal base from which to tour the Highlands to the north.

The Isle of Mull is only a short ferry trip away. Mull's capital, Tobermory, is instantly recognised by its famous brightly painted buildings. The island has a fascinating history being once home to the Chief of the Clan MacLean and site of the clan's ancient Duart Castle which has spectacular views from its battlements.

South along the coast are the unspoilt glens and bays of Mid-Argyll and Kintyre and the islands of Islay and Jura which are easily reached by ferry. Visit the whitwashed houses of Inveraray and the turreted Inveraray Castle, home to the Dukes of Argyll. Campbelltown in Kintyre was the scene of Viking repulsions at Saddell Abbey and has some lovely beaches nearby.

The captivating Isle of Bute lies at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, a place of tranquil relaxation with sheltered coves and sandy bays. Ideal for leisurely hiking and easy-going cycling on quiet back roads. Maybe take in the grandeur of Rothesay Castle or Mount Stuart - the House and gardens of the Marquess of Bute.
