This cosy cottage enjoys a wood burner to relax in front of after a day spent exploring the beach just 50 yards away.
On Kintyre’s stunning west coast and situated only yards from a beautiful white sandy beach, this traditional, semi-detached cottage is located on a quiet lane, giving access to the local church. Originally two cottages, dating back to 1862, the property has been tastefully renovated to create a two bedroom cottage with a contemporary, open plan living space with wood burner. This is a tranquil retreat from which to explore the surrounding area, and the clean environment and clear waters are home to all sorts of interesting wildlife. The cottage has sea views to the front and rear and unrivalled views across to Gigha, with magnificent sunsets, and the Paps of Jura in the distance. Seals can be seen basking on the inshore reef and otters are known to live close by.
Charlie’s Cottage is ideally located midway between Tarbert and Campbeltown. Tarbert, the gateway to Kintyre, has numerous local shops, pubs and restaurants. Tarbert regularly hosts events, including the Scottish Series Yacht Race, traditional boat fair, seafood festival, music festival and the Tarbert Fair. Campbeltown is one of a handful of areas in Scotland categorised as a whisky producing region, and is home to the Campbeltown Single Malt, at one point having 34 distilleries and proclaiming itself the whisky capital of the world. The town boasts two distilleries as well as a museum, heritage centre and a harbour, with an annual regatta and music festival. Moreover, it is well-served with supermarkets, independently owned shops, and excellent hotels and restaurants offering the finest local produce.
The surrounding area is well-known for its fine beaches, unspoilt countryside and scenic walks, with the addition of the Kintyre Way, making this an ideal location from which to explore the Kintyre Peninsula. Lying just off the west coast of Kintyre, the Isle of Gigha offers a pleasant day trip. Within a short distance, there are many quiet and sandy beaches to explore and there is easy access to the isles of Islay, Arran and Jura. Jura is one of the wildest and most mountainous of the Inner Hebrides. Islay is great for wildlife enthusiasts, as it boasts a large RSPB reserve, a wintering population of barnacle and white-fronted geese, and a wildlife information centre. The Machrihanish Bird Observatory is located nearby at Gauldrons Beach and is fantastic for watching migratory birds. For the outdoor enthusiast there is walking, cycling, fishing and water sports and for golfers, there are world renowned golf courses close by in Machrihanish. Beach 50 yards.
