Scottish Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


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

These cottages (refs SBW and SRRL see below for individual description) are set on the beautiful Kildalloig Estate on The Mull of Kintyre. Set against the rugged beauty of the sea and the wild landscape of the Kintyre Peninsula, they 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. There are wonderful stretches of secluded beach and coastal walks (with coves and rockpools, ideal for children), 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, horse trekking, mountain biking and island hopping to Gigha, Islay and Arran. Kintyre is home to five golf courses - the most famous is the championship course at Macrihanish with its stunning and infamous first hole. There are a further two 18-hole golf courses - Southend and Machrihanish Dunes and two excellent 9-hole courses in Carradale and Tarbet. Campbeltown (4 miles) has supermarkets, shops, restaurants and leisure centre (with swimming pool, gym, sauna and sun beds). In its day, Campbeltown had over 30 whisky distilleries. Today only two survive – Glen Scotia and Springbank, with the latter offering tours by appointment. Further attractions in Campbeltown include the Campbeltown Cross, the quaint Art Deco cinema, the Birds of Prey centre, the Museum, the Linda McCartney memorial garden and the Mull Lighthouse. Shops and pub 3 miles.

New Orleans is a cosy secluded cottage for two with stunning views across to Arran and Davaar Island. There are marvellous walks along coastal paths from the doorstep. New Orleans provides a uniquely secluded, peaceful place to enjoy a holiday. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable. Living room with wood-burning stove and kitchen area. Conservatory. First floor: Double bedroom with 5ft bed and original wooden floors. Bathroom with shower and toilet. Sea views throughout.

    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 from:

    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.

    The outstanding feature of this cottage is its stunning location with a sun room from which the local wildlife can be viewed. The cottage itself is cosy, comfortable and welcoming.

    An amazing place away from it all. The cottage sits on a beach where we observed seals and an Otters. The bird life and wildlife was breathtaking. Definitely somewhere to go and unwind. We took our two dogs and even though there were sheep around, the garden was enclosed and the dogs had a great time too!

    Lovely cottage in beautiful location. Beautiful scenery that changes with the weather. Would have scored 10 in all areas if had either Wi-Fi or a good 4G and better mobile phone signal in the cottage. Having said that would certainly stay again and highly recommend it.
