  • "Enjoyed our stay and the location is great."

    A couple of minor issues; several window units need to be replaced (the condensation inside them obscures the lovely views), the bushes along the path from the driveway and up the side steps need to be trimmed back a lot as they obscure the path. The kitchen/dining area was fine for the two of us but a larger group would likely struggle for space if cooking and eating in the kitchen.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay ar Rhuside in Campbeltown - nice cottage with a stunning view over the town."

  • "We were delighted with our stay at Rhuside."

    The bungalow was excellent in terms of equipment (including wifi), cleanliness and comfort. It is easy to find, and parking is right outside and private. The tray of local produce in the kitchen was a nice surprise on arrival. The house is a short walk from the centre of Campbeltown in one direction and from the two supermarkets (Tesco and Co-op) in another. As a bonus, its hill location in Dalintober has an good view over Campbeltown Loch and harbour from the garden and the south/southwest-facing rooms. For a stay in Kintyre, Campbeltown and Tarbert are the most practical locations in terms of shopping and of bases from which to travel. Personal and family connections with the south of the area made us choose Campbeltown, and we were very pleased with that choice. We are happy to recommend Rhuside unreservedly.

  • "No carpet in hallway just bare floorboards."

    Plug in heaters in rooms which are not child friendly. Window sills not cleaned with dead flies on them had to clean ourselves.

    Thank you for your feedback. The hallway has stripped and varnished floorboards with two rugs which is in keeping with the style of the property. The description of the property states there are electric fires but we will clarify they are plug in. We do hope you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards. Property Owner

  • "Great location in Campbeltown with view of the harbour from bedroom and living room; close to all amenities (and whiskey distilleries) by foot."

    Lovely hamper awaiting us at arrival; great garden to relax in. Will definitely recommend!

  • "Rhuside was a short up hill walk / drive from the pretty town of Campbeltown so you could pop out for fish and chips on foot if you wanted to, but once there it was so quiet you are completely undisturbed."

    You look down on trees and a good view of the harbour. We enjoyed eating our tea outside at the picnic table in the evening sun with that lovely view. The cottage was clean, comfortable and cosy with a nice welcome pack of local produce. Everything we needed was avaluable there. The beds were very comfy and the shower was good, both of which are high on our priorities when on holiday. Wonderfull scenery and beeches in the beautiful part of the world. Would highly recommend.

The property

Settled at the end of a quiet track above the centre of Campbeltown is this charming detached bungalow, Rhuside, offering a scenic base for adventures on the Kintyre Peninsula.

This terracotta cottage is ideal for a family of six seeking an authentic Scottish break, just a stone's throw from the heart of the town and surrounded by incredible scenery.

Upon arrival park up on the off-road space before heading inside, finding a small porch entrance where you can hang up coats and leave boots.

Make your way into the kitchen/diner after returning from a day out, flicking the kettle on or preparing a snack for the group, with a host of appliances to assist you on your self-catered stay, with the addition of a washing machine and tumble dryer.

Gather at the dining table at the end of the room at mealtimes, with the table extending to seat all six guests, with a door leading out to the garden from here.

Relax in the evening within the homely comfort of the sitting room, home to an electric stove-effect fire adding a warming touch, with a TV to watch and a selection of books to peruse, you can unwind on the large sofa.

Find three delightful bedrooms to choose from at night, with the double bedroom and one of the two twin rooms featuring beautiful views from the windows down to the harbour and the sea, each adorned with bright, fresh colour schemes and storage for your things.

Freshen up within the family bathroom which boasts a bath with an overhead shower, with a WC separate.

Enjoy having your own outdoor space with the garden excellently maintained and containing a number of shrubs and trees to provide privacy, whilst ensuring the wonderful views are still visible from your fabulous elevated position.

Set off from your doorstep on a walk down into town to the harbour side where you can admire the varied collection of boats before browsing Campbeltown's offering of shops and cafés.

Delight in having an excellent choice of restaurants, pubs and takeaways when you need a night off from cooking, or want to celebrate a special occasion.

Whiskey connoisseurs will love being on the doorstep of a well-established and award-winning distillery, Glen Scotia Distillery, where you can enjoy a 1-hour tour of the distillery before rounding the visit off with a dram of their double cask single malt whiskey!

At low-tide enjoy a walk out to Davaar Island via the mile-long causeway to take in the fantastic views of Campbeltown and over to Arran, with a number of sea caves to explore too including one famous for being home to a cave painting of the Crucifixion from 1887!

Pay a visit to the Campbeltown Heritage Centre to learn of the local history or the Campbeltown Museum, and don't miss a chance to see the oldest working cinema in Scotland at Campbeltown Picture House, noted for its Art Nouveau design.

Golfers can enjoy some great golf courses like the Machrahanish Golf Club, around ten minutes away by car, designed by famed Scottish golfer Old Tom Morris in 1876.

As well as beautiful beaches including Carskiey Beach and Dunaverty Beach, and the likes of Mull of Kintyre and Southend, there's plenty to see and do from Campbeltown.

There are lots of ways of reaching Campbeltown, but if you fancy a break from driving why not take the ferry from Ardrossan, enjoying a coffee on board whilst you wait to reach your destination.

Spend a tranquil retreat at Rhuside on the scenic Kintyre Peninsula.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.

Please note: This property sleeps a maximum of 4 adults and 2 teenagers, children or infants.
