Situated just yards from the sea and a beautiful sandy beach, this terraced holiday cottage is located close to the Gigha ferry, where you can hop on for the 20-minute crossing and explore the island. From the nearby shore, there are views across to Gigha, the Paps of Jura and magnificent sunsets. This is a tranquil retreat from which to explore the surrounding area. Surrounded by an abundance of natural wildlife, the clean environment and clear waters are home to all sorts of interesting wildlife. The Machrihanish Bird Observatory is located nearby at Gauldrons Beach, and is fantastic for watching migratory birds.
Campbeltown is one of a handful of areas in Scotland categorised as a whisky producing region, and is home to the Campbeltown Single Malt, at one point having 34 distilleries and proclaiming itself the whisky capital of the world. The town boasts two distilleries as well as a museum, heritage centre and a harbour, with an annual regatta and music festival. The town is well-served with supermarkets, independently owned shops and excellent hotels and restaurants offering the finest local produce. The area is well known for its fine beaches, unspoilt countryside and scenic walks, with the addition of the Kintyre Way.
Lying just off the west coast of Kintyre, the Isle of Gigha offers a pleasant day trip. Within a short distance, there are many quiet and sandy beaches to explore and there is easy access to the Isles of Islay, Arran and Jura. Jura is one of the wildest and most mountainous of the Inner Hebrides. It is great for wildlife enthusiasts, as it boasts a large RSPB reserve, a wintering population of barnacle and white-fronted geese and a wildlife information centre. Walking, cycling, fishing and water sports are nearby.
This property can be booked with Jura Cottage (ref CC523151) and Gigha Cottage (ref CC523152) to accommodate up to 6+6 guests.
