Additional Location Information
The Kintyre Peninsula is an area of outstanding beauty. It is off the beaten track but only 1-1.5 hour's drive from the tourist hot-spots of Inveraray and Oban. New visitors to Kintyre are often struck by the quiet roads and deserted beaches that offer a true "get away from it all" experience without having to travel hundreds of miles.
The area is popular with outdoor enthusiasts and the house is an ideal base for golf, sailing, surfing, deer stalking, horse riding, walking, cycling, wildlife/bird watching, fishing, whisky tasting, diving, painting and photography, as well as exploring local galleries, museums, historic sites, heritage centres and distilleries. There are a number of local golf courses including Machrihanish, the newly opened Machrihanish Dunes, Dunaverty, Carradale, Tarbert and Gigha. The first hole at Machrihanish Golf Club has been voted the best first hole in the world.
For sailors, there is an excellent harbour and sheltered anchorage in Tarbert which also plays host to the annual Tarbert Folk Festival, Tarbert Seafood Festival and several sailing events including the popular Scottish Series. The surrounding area is also well known for its beaches and unspoiled countryside, and the beautiful secluded beach of Dunskeig Bay is just a short walk from the house.
The Cowal Peninsula and the Islands of Gigha, Islay, Jura and Arran are all easily accessed by Ferry Services, which is only a short drive away. There is superb hill walking as well as the newly accessed Kintyre Way; an 86 mile walk opened in 2006 which is divided into sections enabling walkers of all ages and abilities to walk the length and breadth of Kintyre in relative isolation and safety. A scenic walk through Clachan village and up the hill takes you to the remains of an iron age fort and settlement from where there are panoramic views towards Gigha, Islay, Jura, West Loch Tarbert and Ireland. There is excellent sea and loch fishing and Balinakill House has fishing rights for two rods on nearby Loch Ciaran.
