Kintyre peninsula:

Never more than 10 miles wide, the unexplored and unique Kintyre pennisula stretches south and westwards to within sight of Ireland, holding many secrets and surprises. Gardens ablaze with colour, stunning beaches, rolling hillsides, charming shore side villages and a rich history.

To the west, the A83 reveals magnificent open views of the rugged coastline offering you unspoilt views of Gigha, Islay and Jura, glorious beaches, crashing surf and the Atlantic ocean. Explore the rich diversity of wildlife, from hilltop to seashore with many rocky shores playing host to colonies of grey and Atlantic seals. Several species of deer roam the hillsides, and even otters are common.

Remaining unspoilt throughout the years, the twisting east coast meanders over heather clad hills, through lush glens and forests, by sandy shores and rocky headlands, with constant panoramic views of the Kilbrannan Sound and the mountains of Arran.

The central location makes it an ideal base for exploring the Kintyre peninsula and island hopping to Gigha, Jura, Islay and Arran.
