  • "We received a warm welcome from Alastair on our arrival."

    We were shown round the cottage and enjoyed reading their Brochure regarding places of interest before having dinner in the Cafe and meeting his wife Lorraine The premises were spick and span easy access as the Ferry to Gigha is just outside the cottage, ideal for walkers We will certainly visit again as the scenery is beautiful

  • "We had a lovely break at Jura Cottage."

    A gorgeous little cottage in a beautiful place. Very comfortable and clean, with lovely owners, who even provided a pot to cook the two delicious lobsters we bought off the fisherman, literally as he was landing!! Very accessible, opposite the Ghigha Ferry, but with a secluded feel, I would thoroughly recommend a stay in any of these beautiful cottages.

  • "Cooking facilities were not what we expected and the microwave/ convection grill Was something we had never used and had no instruction manual."

    However holiday let owners did all they could to assist us, which was appreciated. Other than this, facilities would have been a full smiley face.

The property

Move through the pleasant space to the bedroom area, which comprises a lovely double and ample storage space for your luggage.

After enjoying a well-earned rest, start the morning off with a soothing dip in the neighbouring bathroom's p-shaped bath.

Be sure to make the most of the apartments delightful sitting-out area, which can be found to the front of the property and is perfect for an alfresco, morning coffee.

About the location


  • Campbeltown 18.8 miles
  • Tarbert 18.6 miles
  • Lochgilphead 31.8 miles

A stone’s throw away from the ferry to the Isle of Gigha, which is a scenic sail away, a beautiful tranquil place which is community-owned and has its own temperate microclimate thanks to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. Tayinloan is midway down the West coast of the Kintyre Peninsula, and you are well placed to discover all that this famous Peninsula has to offer, for instance, Campbeltown, which is famous for its whiskey, and the oldest operating Art Deco Cinema in the UK, and Machrihanish, where the US and RAF were based, with the longest runway in Europe, where you can catch a flight to Glasgow. Alternatively, walk to Westport along one of the longest sandy beaches on Kintyre with spectacular sand dunes and untamed surf from the Atlantic Ocean which makes it a Mecca for surfers from all over the world. Further round, there is The Mull of Kintyre with its lighthouse, Southend, a fantastic beach, along with St Columba’s Footprint, and caves. Head up the East road through Peninver, and on to Carradale, a sleepy picturesque fishing village. Why not head to Clonaig, where you could take a day out over the Kilbrannan Sound to the Island of Arran (The Sleeping Giant), also known as Scotland in miniature, on account of its geology? Go on further to find Skipness with its Castle, and Seafood Cabin and Smokehouse in its grounds - a great day out for kids and adults alike! To complete your round trip of the peninsula head on to Tarbert, where the fishing fleet keeps the local hotels, restaurants, and A&D Johnsons fishmongers. As you can see there is all of the above and so much more to see and do around the coast, not forgetting to mention the hiking trails, mountain biking, wildlife watching, fishing, and ample opportunities to unwind. Come to Kintyre, there’s something for Everyone.
