Overview

Standing almost at the tip of the Mull of Kintyre (much celebrated in the song by Paul McCartney and you can see why) some 8 miles south of Campbeltown, 'the furthest town from anywhere' it has fine open views all around. Particularly to the front you can see right across the Firth to the Ayrshire coast. Just a few yards up the road, there is also a good view of Ailsa Craig towering out of the water.

The house stands detached on a peaceful single track road, in the midst of fields. It is surrounded by a large enclosed grass garden and the nearest habitation is the farm about a quarter of a mile along the road. Being all on one level, with a ramp to the front door, it is a good choice for holiday makers of limited mobility.

Inside, what strikes one first is the spaciousness. The big, modern and well-equipped dining kitchen is open plan through to an equally large dining room (with piano) and then there are sliding doors to a comfortable lounge, with living flame fire. Both sitting and dining rooms have large picture windows to take advantage of the views.

There is a conservatory behind the sitting room and the kitchen door opens on to a small decking area. Three bedrooms (two doubles and a twin with extra pull-out bed), a bathroom and separate shower room complete the attractive, warm and very practical accommodation.

Map & Local

The nearest shop, tea room and pub are at Southend, some two and a half miles from the cottage. Campbeltown has all facilities, supermarkets, etc. It is a historic town boasting no less than three distilleries, one of which offers guided tours.

It also has a lively, year-round music scene, with several festivals catering for folk, Scottish and classical tastes. There are golf courses at Dunaverty and Machrihanish, where there is also an excellent beach that is popular with canoeists and surfers. The coast around the cottage is dotted with little beaches and coves, some very private and secluded, where you will most likely be completely alone.

This is essentially a place to chill and relax, with perhaps a little walking, cycling or lazing on the beach thrown in. If you go right down to the tip of the Mull, you may well see golden eagles and seals are frequent visitors to the shore line.

If, however, you do find yourself thinking of a change of scene, you can drive up the Mull to Claonaig, where the ferry runs across to Lochranza on Arran, to Tayinloan, where you can cross to Gigha and, perhaps, take in the Achamore Gardens there. Or go up to Kennacraig and take the boat to Islay.

In Campbeltown you can arrange a sea tour round the Kintyre Peninsula or a day visit to Sanda Island which has its own pub and lighthouse. The most likely scenario, however, is that once you have reached this lovely spot, you will be very reluctant to leave.

Please note: while we make every effort to be as accurate as possible, the actual position of the cottage indicated on the map above and the proximity of the amenities in the Local Info section cannot be guaranteed to be precise and should be used as a guide only.
