  • "We so loved the view across the sea from this property, even a telescope provided."

    .. The standard of decoration and facilities of this cottage was just superb. It was probably one of the highest spec. self catering places, we have ever stayed in.

  • "The house is exactly as shown on the website, with the lounge and main bedroom having a fabulous open sea view that we found difficult to prize ourselves away from."

    The house is an easy 10 or so minutes walk to the town centre, which is perfect. If there was one suggestion that would make it even better, then I'd say that there were no garden chairs or table to enjoy the outside. We did want to sit in the garden and enjoy the sound of the waves, but we had to get our own chairs from the car to do this. It's a minor point, but it would have been handy to have these. Overall, a fabulous property in a fabulous location on the water.

Found within a deep bay of the Kintyre Peninsula is this stunning Victorian property based in Campbeltown, which looks out over the spectacular Western Highlands over the cerulean seas.

The historical culture is evident as soon as you see the property, boasting beautiful bay windows and patterned brickwork, this large dwelling is ideal for a fun family escapade to the Scottish coast.

Step foot into the spacious hallway where you'll find a classic wooden stairway accompanied by timeless decor.

Indulge in a luxurious hot drink from the complimentary coffee machine provided in the kitchen area, which also features all the amenities needed to whip up a family feast to devour at the large timber dining table.

Keep on top of your weekly washing in the utility room containing a washing machine and a tumble dryer, situated next to the cloakroom.

As you walk up the stairway to the first floor, you're greeted by a lofty stained-glass window, shining a heavenly light onto the first-floor landing.

Directly outside the property is a ferry terminal, and a popular area for boating, there are picnic tables where you can observe boats travelling to and from the bay.

About the location


Tarbert 38 miles; Lochgilphead 50 miles.

Campbeltown is the Kintyre Peninsula's main town and is set in a deep bay, sheltered by Davaar Island, which can be reached by foot at low tide by a mile-long causeway, and the beautiful surrounding hills. In its heyday, the town boasted a vast fishing fleet and, allegedly, 34 whisky distilleries! Today, there are two single malts to be sampled in the town, from Glen Scotia and Springbank. Worth a visit are the Campbeltown Heritage Centre, housed in an old church, the Tartan Kirk, a very striking building which provides an interesting insight into its past history, and the 'Wee Picture House', the country's oldest working cinema and an Art Deco treasure! The town also offers a swimming pool and fitness suite. A few miles to the south is The Mull of Kintyre, made famous by Sir Paul McCartney's song, from where you can see the hills of County Antrim, Northern Ireland, only 12 miles away.
