In The Heart Of Kintyre On The West Coast
This area is simply one of the most stunning and beautiful surroundings that you could come across. It is interspersed with numerous forest walks and is of course part of the Kintyre Way. Maurice & Steve were attracted here for its beauty and views across to Arran. If you want to get away from the daily stresses and strains of life then this is the area for you!
This area is a perfect base from which to explore the Kintyre Peninsula and you can also get the nearby ferry to the nearby islands of Arran, Gigha, Jura, and Islay. Renowned for its golf courses, one of which is Carradale Golf Course which is apparently a jewel in the golfing community and another best-kept secret.
There are opportunities for shooting and deer stalking, fishing, walking, wildlife adventures including looking out for golden eagles, red deer. Maurice & Steve have even reported seeing otters in the bay at Grogport along with seals, sea lions, and basking sharks in the harbour. Oyster catchers, red squirrels, and rare white-tailed sea eagles can always be seen.
There are numerous castles nearby like Torrisdale, Saddell, Tarbert, Dunaverty, and Skipness. There are so many beautiful and remote white sandy beaches. The area is brilliant for cycling, kayaking, and pony trekking, and of course don’t forget to pop into Campbeltown to sample the famous Scottish Glen Scotia and Campbeltown whisky at their distilleries.
This is simply a wonderful place to visit and at the end of the day have a whisky or glass of wine and watch the sunset peacefully behind the mountains.
Eat, Drink & Play
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat. Apart from eating at “Carradales”, the immediate region’s seafood and game is appreciated by food lovers around the globe, and there are some well- kept secrets when it comes to serving up delicious locally sourced food.
Whether it’s a simple bowl of fresh langoustines at a seafood shack or fine dining at a loch-side eatery, come to Carradale, the perfect base for an unforgettable culinary experience.
20 minutes away is Campbeltown, Kintyre’s major town which once had 34 distilleries, but today just three and Carradales help to serve up these wonderful single malt whiskies. Guided tours of the Springbank and Glen Scotia Distilleries is a must when visiting Carradales. Campbeltown’s ‘oldest new’ distillery, Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery, is home of Kilkerran single malt. Carradales is proud to serve a fine selection of these local single malt whiskies.
