Overview

Islay & Mid Argyll Villa Rental Photos and Description

luxury self-catering holiday homes, full of character, near beach.

Kintyre is an idyllic holiday destination with 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 should you so desire, alternatively simply absorb the tranquil atmosphere of this beautiful location and do absolutely nothing!!!

Killean Estate offers several gorgeous period cottages and villas, sleeping 2,4,6,9 as well as a baronial style mansion house which sleeps 20. Cosy and welcoming, all have oodles of character yet have recently been renovated to provide fabulous modern facilities. With 4,000 acres of rolling hills, burns, woodland, lochs and tropical gardens to explore, and the most amazing views of the ocean and islands beyond, this really is a fantastic location, perfect for a romantic get-away, relaxing summer break or a family adventure holiday.

Shooting: Throughout the season we offer excellent walked up and driven shooting on the estate. Dawn or dusk deer stalking is also available for those shooting or whether you have a camera in hand. Our Gamekeeper can also set up the clay pigeon shooting apparatus for your use upon request.

Fishing: There are three lochs on the estate stocked with brown trout, which all guests staying at Killean are free to fish with our compliments. There is also the opportunity to fish from the beach.

Surfing: Nearby Westport beach offers fantastic surfing opportunities as well as a gorgeous sandy beach running around the bay. Around the headland from here is Machrihanish Bay, one of Scotland's top surfing hot-spots. Both are reached within 20 minutes by car.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Carol, Just a short note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Killean Villa. Everything was 1st Class. Both my wife and I and our guests really enjoyed the house and it's location. A special thanks to David who really went out of his way to ensure our stay was extra special and for the card and wine which was a very thoughtful and personal touch. I really enjoyed my chat also with Archie about the local history. We were in a bit of a rush yesterday morning and the only thing we forgot to mention was that the water get's really too hot. One of our guests got quite a burn from the metal mixer in the shower cubicle. The water get's so hot that it heated the metal in the mixer to such an extent that when he touched it with his bicep it left quite a burn. So something to watch out for, a child could get a very bad burn/scald. So with the exception of that concern, a thoroughly enjoyable experience that we would like to try to repeat in the future. Can we also recommend our caterer to other guests, Valerie Marshall from Tarbert 07824861254 (Bedsheadsandnosh) was absolutely brilliant and put allot of expensive Edinburgh establishments in the shade. Her efficiency , choice of ingredients (all locally sourced) and service was wonderful. Kind regards, hope to see Killean again. George & Farnaz Taylor, Edinburgh



NB FROM KILLEAN - WE IMMEDIATELY INSPECTED THE WATER AND FOUND THE THERMOSTAT TO BE FAULTY AND REPLACED THIS BEFORE OUR NEXT GUESTS ARRIVAL.

killean estate
Car: recommended

Killean Estate is located on the west coast of the Kintyre peninsula, in a rural sea-front location overlooking the islands of Gigha, Jura and Islay.

There is easy access to the many amenities of Tarbert and Campbeltown as Killean Estate is on the A83, half way between the two towns which are both 18 miles away (20 mins drive). The village of Tayinloan is just one mile up the road and there are several good restaurants within a short drive.

Our location is superb for those who might want to do a bit of island-hopping. The isle of Gigha is just over a mile off-shore and well worthy of a day trip. Arran, Islay and Jura are also within easy reach.

Kintyre is an idyllic holiday destination offering some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Scotland. 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 nearby....... here are a few of the must-see's .....

take a short boat trip to see the 'Crucifix' cave paintings. Go whale watching, horse-riding, walking, or sea fishing. Try surfing from one of Scotland's top 5 surf hotspots. Visit one of the local castles or abbeys and learn the history of the 'birth' of Scotland and Kintyre's involvement. Walk through the botanical gardens at Achamore. Watch the wildlife from the machrihanish bird observatory. complet, as well as plenty of sight-seeing opportunities.

Play golf at one of Kintyre's 5 golf courses, which provide a variety of challenges suitable for the novice to the professional. These include Machrihanish Golf Club & Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club, both superb links courses.

Plus, if you bring some binoculars, you might even catch a glimpse of our eagles as well as a multitude of other seabirds, seals, otters, deer and other wildlife.
