About the neighborhood
The nearby town of Campbeltown offers many facilities including tourist information, hotels, restaurants, shopping, supermarkets, etc. Activities within the area include golf, (there are three further golf courses a short drive away), sailing, fishing, sea angling, pony trekking and walking, including the nearby Kintyre Trail. The island of Davaar, in the mouth of Campbeltown Loch, can be visited at low tide to view the famous cave painting of the Crucifix. Campbeltown's 'mountain', Bennghuilean, can be climbed view various well-marked routes to suit differing abilities.
How to get there

The A82 will take you along part of Loch Lomond, briefly around the top of Loch Long, and a long way down the side of Loch Fyne. At Tarbet on Loch Lomond stay on the road to Campbeltown – it becomes the A83 at this point. The A83 will take you all the way to Campbeltown down the Kintyre peninsula. Drive into the centre of Campbeltown this will lead you to a 'T' junction. Turn right along Main Street and then shortly the main road bears round to the right taking you onto the road to Machrihanish and Southend – it is still the A83. Stay on this road to Machrihanish (approx 4 miles). At a small village called Stewarton follow the sign to Mac...
