Kintyre is an idyllic holiday destination offering some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Scotland. With crystal clear waters, sandy beaches and loads of wildlife, we usually have the best of the Scottish weather too courtesy of the Gulf Stream warming our climate! There is lots to see and do with 5 golf courses (including the world renowned Machrihanish course with the first hole regarded by many as the best in the world), horse-riding, walking, fishing and surfing all readily available, as well as plenty of sight-seeing opportunities.
Killean Estate is located on the west coast of the Kintyre peninsula, in a rural sea-front location yet with easy access to the many amenities of Tarbert and Campbeltown. The village of Tayinloan is just one mile up the road and there are several good restaurants within a short drive. The island of Gigha is just over a mile off-shore and well worthy of a day trip and other islands are also within easy reach.
Other Activities: Shooting
