Description

New Orleans provides the classic Scottish seaside holiday spot, with an abundant number of rocky and sandy beaches close by.

These two seaside cottages, Fisherman’s Cottage and New Orleans (refs SBW and SRRL) are located on Kildalloig Estate on The Mull of Kintyre. Kildalloig is a working hill farm and native luing cattle and blackface sheep can be seen grazing on the hills. Set against the rugged beauty of the sea and the wild landscape of the Kintyre Peninsula, these holiday cottages provide an idyllic sanctuary, offering modern amenities and historic coastal charm. Surrounded by natural beauty and sea views, each cottage is comfortably furnished, provides wonderful character and history, and has been thoughtfully arranged to accommodate couples, honeymooners, families, golfers, hikers, birdwatchers and other visitors. Well-behaved dogs are welcome too. There are wonderful stretches of secluded beach and coastal walks with coves and rock pools, and the fascinating little island of Davaar with its lighthouse, cave painting and wild goats which can be reached on foot at low tide. There are marvellous walks along the coast and through woodland on the estate, where seals, otters and a variety of birds can be seen, and in the hills, where golden eagles soar.

The cottages provide the classic Scottish seaside holiday spot with an abundant number of rocky and sandy beaches close by and pristine sandy beaches within 5-15 minutes’ drive. Activities locally include surfing, sea fishing, pony trekking and mountain biking. The cottages are ideally placed for island hopping to Gigha, Islay and Arran with ferries within 45 minutes’ away. Kintyre is home to 5 golf courses, the most famous is the championship course at Machrihanish with its stunning and infamous first hole and 3 miles of award-winning sandy beach. There are a further two 18-hole golf courses, Southend and Machrihanish Dune, and two excellent 9-hole courses in Carradale and Tarbert. Campbeltown,3 miles, has supermarkets, shops, and restaurants. There is a modern leisure centre with large infinity swimming pool, fitness suite including gym and weights, and relaxation suite (steam room and sauna). There are also conference facilities and a library with free high speed Wi-Fi.

In the Victorian Age, Campbeltown was known as the whisky capital of the world and had over 30 whisky distilleries. Today only two survive, Glen Scotia and Springbank. Whisky tours with tasting are available most days and the associated whisky shop, Eaglesomes, has a large variety of old and new whiskies for sale. Further attractions in Campbeltown include the busy little harbour with fishing boats, yacht marina and a large quay for ships loading timber and wind turbine towers produced locally. There is also a ferry terminal with a ferry that runs to Ardrossan on the Ayrshire Coast during the summer months. Other noteworthy attractions are the Campbeltown Cross, the quaint Art Deco cinema ’The Wee Picture House’ which shows a variety of new and old films most days. There is also a museum and the Linda McCartney memorial garden, and the Campbeltown Pottery where a demonstration of traditional hand throwing can be seen and commissions can be ordered. A visit to The Mull Lighthouse, which is a 5-mile drive away, is a must, likewise a visit to The Muneroy Tearoom at Southend, renowned for its delicious soup with homemade rolls and home baking. Fishing available nearby. Shops and pubs 3 miles.

Located in a secluded bay next to the shore, New Orleans is a perfect secluded hideaway. The spacious sun room affords a panoramic view of the sea and Davaar Island. A variety of seabirds and animals such as otters and dolphins are regularly seen. There is a secluded garden at the rear of the cottage, with a burn flowing past and woods beyond which is an ideal location for picnics and bird watching.

    New Orleans was described as "Cottage by the sea in its very own secluded bay with total privacy" its location is beautiful however seclusion and privacy was not possible - every day there were walkers, dog walkers, cyclists, picnickers, people fishing and cockle pickers who visited the bay and more often than not stopped or stayed in front of the cottage. It states in the cottage particulars that "New Orleans was completely refurbished in 2010 to the highest standards". Today the property is very tired. It refers to a freezer - which is a ice cube compartment in the refrigerator There is no food storage cupboards in the kitchen There is no wardrobes or facilities to hang clothes in the bedroom. The clothes hanging rail provided was broken Refuse - 1 refuse bag was provided for two weeks! and referred to putting refuse in green bin which could not be found. We ended up taking refuse and recycling material to the local council recycling centre in Campbeltown. The property location is superb and cannot be faulted however the owners should try and consider what action needs to be taken to allow greater privacy, and carry out minor improvements to the cottage and refuse removal.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments regarding New Orleans. I am sorry that you did not let us know about the broken clothes rail during your stay. We were unaware that it was broken and had we known we would have replaced it for you. We have also noted the comment regarding the freezer and will have the description of the property amended. Had you notified us during your stay that you wanted a freezer we would have provided one for you. Likewise had you advised us that the green refuse bin was missing we would have provided one for you immediately. We have also noted your comments regarding the lack of hanging space and lack of food storage space. Neither of these issues has been mentioned by previous guests so we had assumed that food storage and clothes hanging space was adequate. With regard to privacy, as I explained to you when you telephoned us to complain about people walking along the path beside the sea with their dogs, “Freedom to Roam” applies in Scotland and therefore the public can take responsible access anywhere that is not within the policies of a private dwelling. You would have had total privacy within the policies of New Orleans, which are extensive and clearly delineated with a fence. During your stay there was a spell of lovely weather and more visitors to the town than usual. People do like to take their dogs for walks by the sea and although we do not advertise or promote the coastal path, we do allow parking in our sheep handling area when it‘s not in use so that the elderly people of the town can enjoy a walk or even just park and look at the sea. They do not usually get as far as New Orleans. Most of the year there are almost no visitors and very few people walk past New Orleans and many of our guests have told us they have seen no-one at all during their stay. I am sorry if you did not enjoy your holiday at New Orleans, and can assure you that previous guests, several of whom have been many times, have told us that it is a lovely cottage in a superb location and that it had everything they needed.
