Lephenstrath Bridge Cottages
Set at the tip of the Mull of Kintyre Peninsula, just south of Campbeltown, where its deep bay is sheltered by Davaar Island and many scenic attractions beckon visitors from all over, is Dan's Hoose and Nan's Hoose. Surrounded by working farmland, these traditional farm worker's cottages are ideal for a family get-together or retreat with a group of friends, where you can explore dramatic landscape scenery and return to the soothing comforts of a well-presented interior. The light colour schemes and well-chosen furnishings welcome you inside, where you have all you need to enjoy the perfect break. Choose to spend your down time in the lounge by the warmth of the fire or on a summer's day step out into the enclosed garden, take in the scenery as you sip a refreshing drink and listen to the sounds of nature taking over the landscape. You are in a secluded location here, yet a short drive away from the nearest town full of amenities. Campbeltown is one of the largest towns in Argyll, and once the proclaimed 'whisky capital of the world' with 34 distilleries. You can pay a visit to the three that remain; Glen Scotia, Glengyle and Springbank, which all reveal their secrets to the best recipes in Kintyre. Springbank is definitely a must, retaining the old distilling methods to create Longrow whisky, a peaty single malt rich in flavour. The Mull of Kintyre is the southwestern-most point of the Peninsula, a beautiful area of rugged cliffs, sweeping coastline facing the North Atlantic and secluded beaches, of course not forgetting the lighthouse offering some fantastic views. Enjoy walking, golf, sailing and delve into the history of the area. There are twice daily flights from Glasgow, yet you may want to take the scenic route and drive up the stunning west coast of Kintyre, via Inverary and through the Loch Lomond stunning National Park. You won't be disappointed at a stay here at Lephenstrath Bridge Cottages.

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..
