About the local area

The hotel is open all year round, except over Christmas, and has an award winning restaurant which you may like to sample during your stay. During the quiet months (November to March) opening is very dependant upon demand. You are welcome to sit and relax in the hotel front garden and enjoy the stunning view across the bay where Robert the Bruce landed in 1306. You are only a half mile walk into Carradale itself which has a local shop/bakery/post office, pub and a choice of restaurants. There is also a great 9 hole golf course. There are numerous marked local walks to explore along beaches, up hills or through forests. Carradale’s wonderful large white sandy beach is less than half a mile walk away from the cottage. The largest town on the peninsula is Campbeltown (15 miles to the south) and it offers a good selection of local shops and a couple of larger food retailers. It has a swimming pool with leisure facilities as well as a museum and a Heritage Centre. The area is steeped in history, at Southern St Columbia first landed in Scotland (AD 563). Somerled built an Abbey at Saddell (where an Antony Gormely statue is to be installed in May 2015. Saddell Bay is also the site where Paul McCartney filmed the video for "Mull of Kintyre". From Campbeltown harbour, Davaar Island can be seen and you can walk out to it at low tide (if you’re brave enough!) across the mile long causeway. Kintyre is known for its wonderful golf courses, Springbank Malt Whisky (tours available) and annual Music Festival (August). Machrihanish is home to two "Great Scottish Links Collection" 18 hole golf courses. The Kintyre Way provides a great long distance walk (87 miles) from Tarbert in the north to Danaverty Bay in the south. The close proximity to the sea gives lots of opportunities for coastal walks, boat trips, otter spotting, sea angling, surfing, ideal conditions for kite flying and locally caught seafood. The Mull of Kintyre peninsula itself feels more like an island than mainland, as it is bound by the sea on 3 sides, its rugged coastline provides wonderful westerly views to the islands of Islay, Jura and Gigha or east to Arran. Port Righ Cottage makes a great base to explore this spectacular area of Scotland.
