Description

These two seaside cottages, Fisherman’s Cottage and New Orleans (refs SBW and SRRL) are located on Kildalloig Estate on The Mull of Kintyre. Kildalloig is a working hill farm and native luing cattle and blackface sheep can be seen grazing on the hills. Set against the rugged beauty of the sea and the wild landscape of the Kintyre Peninsula, these holiday cottages provide an idyllic sanctuary, offering modern amenities and historic coastal charm. Surrounded by natural beauty and sea views, each cottage is comfortably furnished, provides wonderful character and history, and has been thoughtfully arranged to accommodate couples, honeymooners, families, golfers, hikers, birdwatchers and other visitors. Well-behaved dogs are welcome too. There are wonderful stretches of secluded beach and coastal walks with coves and rock pools, 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 walks along the coast and through woodland on the estate, where seals, otters and a variety of birds can be seen, and in the hills, where golden eagles soar.

The cottages provide the classic Scottish seaside holiday spot with an abundant number of rocky and sandy beaches close by and pristine sandy beaches within 5-15 minutes’ drive. Activities locally include surfing, sea fishing, pony trekking and mountain biking. The cottages are ideally placed for island hopping to Gigha, Islay and Arran with ferries within 45 minutes’ away. Kintyre is home to 5 golf courses, the most famous is the championship course at Machrihanish with its stunning and infamous first hole and 3 miles of award-winning sandy beach. There are a further two 18-hole golf courses, Southend and Machrihanish Dune, and two excellent 9-hole courses in Carradale and Tarbert. Campbeltown,3 miles, has supermarkets, shops, and restaurants. There is a modern leisure centre with large infinity swimming pool, fitness suite including gym and weights, and relaxation suite (steam room and sauna). There are also conference facilities and a library with free high speed Wi-Fi.

In the Victorian Age, Campbeltown was known as the whisky capital of the world and had over 30 whisky distilleries. Today only two survive, Glen Scotia and Springbank. Whisky tours with tasting are available most days and the associated whisky shop, Eaglesomes, has a large variety of old and new whiskies for sale. Further attractions in Campbeltown include the busy little harbour with fishing boats, yacht marina and a large quay for ships loading timber and wind turbine towers produced locally. There is also a ferry terminal with a ferry that runs to Ardrossan on the Ayrshire Coast during the summer months. Other noteworthy attractions are the Campbeltown Cross, the quaint Art Deco cinema ’The Wee Picture House’ which shows a variety of new and old films most days. There is also a museum and the Linda McCartney memorial garden, and the Campbeltown Pottery where a demonstration of traditional hand throwing can be seen and commissions can be ordered. A visit to The Mull Lighthouse, which is a 5-mile drive away, is a must, likewise a visit to The Muneroy Tearoom at Southend, renowned for its delicious soup with homemade rolls and home baking. Fishing available nearby. Shops and pubs 3 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.
