The Mull of Kintyre is one of the most challenging and yet, in terms of scenery and views, rewarding cottage holiday destinations.
At the extreme southerly tip of the forty-mile long Kintyre peninsula, ‘the Mull’ is a stunning landscape of hills, mountains and sea. Provided the famous mists aren’t rolling in, the Antrim coast of Northern Island and the islands of the Firth of Clyde feel almost within touching distance. The road to reach the Mull is single-track and tortuously winding, and not for the faint-hearted driver. The final part leading to the famous lighthouse can only be undertaken on foot, and is approximately a walk of a mile and a half down a dramatic cliff, but well worth the effort for the fit and firm.
