Carradale: Kintyre - something for everyone


There are plenty of forest trails accessible from the village including parts of 'The Kintyre Way' And the village favourite 'round the Bay' is a lovely amble throught the Carradale Estate and along Carradale Bay.


Linger on one of Kintyre's magnificent sandy beaches. As well as our own Carradale Bay, Saddell - just down the road - is one of the most delightful beaches you could imagine. And on the west side of the peninsula Westport to Machrihanish gives you miles of sand dunes and huge Atlantic rollers.

There are some wonderful sea trips to do care of a Calmac ferry. Islay, Arran, Gigha and Colonsay are all perfect for a day trip - rustle up a gang and keep the costs down.

Eating out.

There is a choice of eateries in the village , from cafes to The Glen bar/restaurant. And further afield trips to the Skipness Seafood Cabin, or Moneroy Cafe in Southend ( the meringues!) are a delight.


Within easy reach of four magnificent courses. Carradale's splendid little 9-hole course, the challenging Machrihanish Championship Course,the amazing new Machrihanish Dunes Course, and Dunaverty - a super 18-hole course on the tip of Kintyre.


Campbeltown is fast becoming well known for its distillery visits, and everyone enjoys a trip round Springbank or Glen Scotia. Most expensive tour so far is £250!
