Description

Situated in the quiet village of Carradale these three charming, semi-detached holiday cottages (refs 30645, 30646 and 30647) offer an ideal location from which to explore the beauty of Kintyre. Colin’s Cottage and Douglas Cottage offer cosy studio accommodation with the bedroom in the style of old Scottish bothies with the bed tucked against the wall in its own recess. The surrounding area is well known for its fine beaches, unspoiled countryside and scenic walks, with the addition of ’The Kintyre Way’ making this a good base from which to explore the Kintyre Peninsula, including local landmarks of Skipness Castle, the Mull of Kintyre, the Isles of Arran and Gigha. Lying just off the west coast of Kintyre, the Isle of Gigha offers a pleasant day trip for visitors. 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 - all of which are well worth the visit. Jura, one of the wildest and most mountainous of the Inner Hebrides, is an ideal place to go for peace and quiet and some great walking. Islay is a great place to visit for wildlife enthusiasts, as it boasts a large RSPB reserve, a wintering population of barnacle and white-fronted geese, and a Wildlife Information Centre.
The Royal Burgh of Campbeltown is the main centre of population in Kintyre. Glasgow is only 20-30 minutes’ flying time from Machrihanish airport, which in turn is 35 minutes’ driving time from the property.
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 harbour, with a music festival. Another attraction in the burgh, is the recreation centre (fitness centre, swimming pool, cafe and library). The town is well served with supermarkets, independently owned local shops which sell a wide variety of goods with excellent hotels and restaurants offering the finest local produce.
Beach 1/2 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 500 yards (10-minute walk).

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.
