Campbeltown in Argyll and Bute lies near the tip of the craggy, heather-covered Kintyre peninsula, made famous by a song by Paul McCartney, who found peace and solitude here during the Beatles’ heyday. With Islay to its west and the Isle of Arran to its east, the peninsula is remote and wild, with beautiful loch-side walks and iconic whisky distilleries to discover. Campbeltown lies on the banks of a vast loch, in Argyll and Bute, surrounded by rugged hills and sheltered by Davaar Island. For centuries, it has been a busy fishing port and a centre for Scotch whisky, with three distilleries to visit during your visits to holiday cottages in Campbeltown. Springbank is perhaps the best known. Founded in 1828, it uses traditional methods to produce fine Longrow whisky.
Homestone Farmhouse is a large and traditional, stone-built farmhouse, on a 250-acre working farm, in an idyllic, secluded rural location, 5 miles from Campbeltown, on the Kintyre Peninsula. This child friendly farmhouse in Scotland sleeps 11 in 5 bedrooms. Pets welcome.
