Colins 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).
