Description

This cosy cottage is set in the small village of Clachan and is ideally located for exploring the Kintyre Peninsula and the Southern Hebrides. With ferries to Arran, Gigha, Jura, Islay and the Cowal Peninsula all within a short drive, there is plenty to do for everyone. Kintyre contains miles of unspoilt coastline with magnificent white, sandy beaches and rolling countryside. Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with superb windsurfing, sea angling, diving, cycling and horse riding nearby. Wildlife is abundant and a trip via RIB boat to see the seals and puffins around Sanda and the Mull of Kintyre Lighthouse makes for a great day out. Close by are miles of beautiful beaches and for leisurely walks the Kintyre Way runs from Tarbert in the north to Danaverty Bay in the south. Clachan itself has a number of beautiful walks and the historically important, vitrified fort of Dunskeig is located here. Drive towards Campbeltown where there are five magnificent golf courses, undoubtedly some of the best in Scotland. A golf course can also be found just 8 miles from the cottage. Tarbert, a pretty harbour town, is 10 miles away and offers a variety of bars, restaurants and shops. Campbeltown is home to a cinema, leisure centre and whisky distillery. Fishing is available on-site, where there is trout, eels and herons. There is also sea fishing available just a 20-minute walk away. Beach 0.5 miles. Shop 500 yards, pub 10 miles and restaurant 8 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.
