Dalmore Farm is situated in a location of great natural scenic beauty about 2.5 miles from the hamlet of Southend and the sandy beaches that form the southernmost tip of the Mull of Kintyre.

Dalmore Farm is in pleasant and pretty rural environs just above the Conieglen Water and over which you cross an old stone bridge from the B842 to reach the access track which leads to the property.

Southend is on the southernmost tip of the ‘Mull’ of Kintyre and its beautiful white sand beaches are washed by the Gulf Stream which provides the peninsular with a temperate climate. The steep rocky cliffs and moorland of the Mull of Kintyre are inhabited by all kinds of wildlife.

Southend has a church, doctor’s surgery, 18 hole golf course, hotel, post office, local provisions store and tea room.

Campbeltown (6.5 miles) is the main shopping town in the area and provides a range of facilities including supermarkets, garages, the award winning ‘Aqualibrium’ leisure centre, a library, hospital and a cinema. The hospital has an air-ambulance service to the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Glasgow for emergencies.

There is a primary school at Southend and secondary education at Campbeltown Grammar.

Campbeltown is popular with tourists and also has a variety of hotels and restaurants. The town holds an annual regatta, a week-long music festival and the Mull of Kintyre half marathon.

The coastal village of Tarbert is 38 miles away where there are a number of friendly harbour pubs and restaurants. Tarbert is renowned for hosting the annual Scottish Series Yachting Event, and for its seafood and folk festivals.

Tarbert also has a ferry link to Portavadie which gives access to an alternative route to Glasgow. The nearby Campbeltown airport (11 miles) offers a twice daily return flight to Glasgow International Airport.

Machrihanish is famous for golf. The links course of Machrihanish is of international acclaim and attracts many visitors. There has also recently opened a new 18 hole golf course called the Machrihanish Dunes Golf Club. Southend has a challenging 18 hole course (Dunaverty Golf Course) and there are nine hole courses in Carradale and on the island of Gigha. The beach of Machrihanish Bay is well known for windsurfing and surf canoeing.

World class sailing is available with access to either Loch Fyne at Tarbert or the west coast and the Inner Hebrides from West Loch Tarbert. The Crinan Canal also connects Loch Fyne at Ardrishaig with Loch Crinan and on to the island of Mull and the Hebrides. The Kennacraig ferry connects the mainland with Islay, Jura and Colonsay.

Productive sea fishing from shore and boat is available locally and there are trout and salmon opportunities by permit in other surrounding rivers and hill lochs.

The countryside is a delight in which to walk or cycle and there is no shortage of scenic routes and places of archaeological and historical interest to visit.

The islands of Davaar and Gigha are nearby and are steeped in history, with stunning scenery and landscapes and attract an abundance of wildlife.
A walkway called the Kintyre Way was completed in 2006 and stretches from Tarbert at the north end of the peninsula, to Southend in the south and criss-crosses the peninsula, connecting communities and landscape, people and produce. The Kintyre Way is 89 miles long in total and with four to seven day’s worth of walking. There is serious hiking and gentle rambles, all of which bring home the beautiful reality that is Kintyre.
