Scottish Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Situated near to fantastic attractions with lots to see and do, this coastal property is just perfect for exploring this wonderful area.

This substantial stone-built house is located on the coast overlooking the world famous Machrihanish Championship Golf Course and the Atlantic Ocean. One of a pair, the holiday property offers stunning views over Machrihanish beach and the Inner Hebridean islands of Islay, Jura and Gigha. Glasgow is only 20-30 minutes’ flying time from Machrihanish Airport, which in turn is 10 minutes’ driving time from the property. British Airways operate two flights daily, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. Campbeltown is one of a handful of areas in Scotland categorised as a whisky producing region and is home to the Campbeltown Single Malt - at one point having 34 distilleries and proclaiming itself the whisky capital of the world. The town boasts two distilleries as well as a museum, heritage centre and harbour, with an annual regatta and music festival. Other attractions in the burgh include The Wee Picture Cinema and a recreation centre (fitness centre, swimming-pool, café and library). The town is well served with supermarkets, independently-owned local shops and excellent hotels and restaurants offering the finest local produce. The surrounding area is well known for its fine beaches, unspoilt countryside and scenic walks, with the addition of the Kintyre Way making this an ideal location from which to explore the Kintyre Peninsula, including Skipness Castle, the village of Carradale, the Mull of Kintyre and Gigha. Lying just off the west coast of Kintyre, the Isle of Gigha offers a pleasant day trip. Within a short distance there are many quiet and sandy beaches to explore and there is easy access to the Isles of Islay, Arran and Jura. Jura, one of the wildest and most mountainous of the Inner Hebrides, is an ideal place to go for peace and quiet. Islay is great for wildlife enthusiasts, as it boasts a large RSPB reserve, a wintering population of barnacle and white-fronted geese, and a Wildlife Information Centre. For the outdoor enthusiast there is walking, cycling, loch and sea fishing and watersports in abundance. Shops 3 miles, pub 100 yards.

    Lovely location. Comfortable and spacious big house. We had a great break with little to complain about. A bit cold and draughty on windy days which and could do with a 'refresh' of some quick and easy things e.g. Loose towel rails, loose toilet roll holders, bulbs blown, batteries in the remotes and the utensils could do with being replaced. Some more attention to detail perhaps.

    This house is a great size and in a great location with lovely views (when the mist clears!). It's a quiet area just with one pub/hotel but they do nice food. If you need a shop you'll need to visit Campbeltown but it's not too far in the car. It's a shame that the house is let down by its state of repair and some basic issues with the facilities. It really needs a good lick of paint and some basic repairs. It is drafty and while the open fire helps keep you warm in the lounge, the rest of the house is cold even with the radiators on. The single glazing doesn't help and the windows were drafty. In many rooms, the overhead lights didn't work, despite having a bulb in them. This makes me think there must be some dodgy wiring in place! Especially as the lights flicker when you switch the electric shower on or off. Although there are two bathrooms, only one has a standard shower, which is not ideal for a party of 8. There is no wifi. While this is not listed in the facilities on the website, it's something I'd expect in any holiday property these days. Especially when the mobile signal is so poor in this area. The kitchen and dining facilities are adequate. It's a shame to have such a large house in a great location let down by these simple things. It just needs a bit of money spent on it and some TLC.
