A Scottish experience! In the converted Old Byre of Kilchrist are two totally separate holiday cottages full of character and in a lovely location in the lea of a castle and surrounded by rolling countryside - yet only three miles from Campbeltown.
Things You Need To Know
There are lots of jokes about Scottish weather and some of them are at least partly true! It can be wet and windy in Kintyre at times, so come prepared. But did you know that the West of Scotland is mild due to the Gulf Stream? There are even palm trees growing in Campbeltown! That is because frosts are rare.
Coming from South of Glasgow, join the M8 Westbound and cross the Erskine Bridge. Keep on the A82 until it branches to the A83 at the North of Loch Lomond. Possible coffee stops include Inverary and Lochgilphead. After Tarbert, the A83 crosses to the West of the peninsula, head down it past Tayinloan, Bellochantuy (try to pronounce it!). When the road leaves the spectacular shoreline, take the road to the right, signposted for the airport. Take the left turn to and past the airport, keep going until T junction. Then turn left to Campbeltown, and then turn right at the (now closed) Country Store (red shutters), signposted 'Southend'(B842). About a mile along the Southend Road,turn left at Knocknaha, just past the telephone box. Follow the road past the castle entrance, branch left into the unmade road and left again, through the field gates, following the track with the castle wall alongside on your left. The white-washed buildings up ahead of you are Kilchrist Castle Cottages. The entrance to the parking area is just above them, through a further set of field gates on your left. PLEASE LEAVE ALL GATES AS YOU FIND THEM.
