The cottage is a short walk from the beach where there are glorious sea views towards the islands of Cara, Gigha, Islay and Jura. The Mull of Kintyre is an area of natural scenic beauty which has always drawn people and it benefits from the mild climates created by the gulf stream.

The town of Campbeltown is 18 miles to the south and has two supermarkets, a full range of shops and professional services, a secondary school, an A&E hospital, leisure facilities (including a modern swimming pool) and a cinema.
