What travellers are saying
- Really interesting and informative tour with an excellent guide. Thoroughly enjoying the whisky I bought as well!Written 1 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- It’s right at the end of Pier Road where there isn’t a lot of parking but I was there very early in the morning and so I had the place to myself. I didn’t expect the track to be quite as up and down as it was but I managed fine (I had my hiking boots on thankfully) and to be honest that was the most enjoyable part because the beach itself is very small. I would recommend it though just to say you have done it!Written 26 July 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Be careful with the tides and do not walk across the mud. The caves are difficult to find and can easily be missed. You have to walk across large rocks on the waters edge to get to the caves. Well worth a look for the adventurous.Written 2 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Worth the climb for the views of Tarbert
Not much left except half of the main tower.
A bit of a climb up from and out of Tarbert.
Though it was worth it for the views of Tarbet alone.Written 28 September 2022
- A fairly long and bumpy single track road takes you to the parking area from which it's a steep downhill walk for around a mile and a half to the lighthouse. Lovely views (if it's a clear day) to Ireland and mainland Scotland. Then it's the steep uphill walk back to the car park. There is a short diversion also to the memorial to the Chinook crash which happened here in 1994. Worth it if your fitness level is up to it.Written 14 August 2022
- We travelled to Islay 6/9 this year Kennacraig to Port Askaig. It was lovely weather and really good crossing. The staff on the ferry were fab. Very very polite and professional. The boat was was comfortable with loads of areas to sit, whether you wanted to look out to the scenery or sit in lounge and watch tv/ have a drink. It was really clean. Food was very nice. Delicious good value soup and we went towards end of sailing to get something to eat, but this was no trouble to the staff. They went off and put individual portions of food on for us. They served it at table. Everything was cleaned thoroughly. I would definitely recommend Calmac to anyone. They’re professionals who do a great job.Written 11 September 2022
- Beautiful drive especially as the weather was gorgeous!
We stopped a number of times to take photos,although none do it justice.
Kintyre is a place we will be returning too 😊Written 20 April 2019
- Spent a few days driving around Loch Fyne enjoying the villages around the shoreline, countryside walks and stunning scenery. Just a lovely place to enjoy the scenery and wildlife.Written 17 September 2019
- We walked the well trodden path arrived at beautiful beach it was hot day people in the water.
Not many ppl on it that's a bonus.
Pictures say it all.
Pass golf club at end of road park and follow the path to access full beach.
Take plenty provisions and make a day of doing nothing on a beautiful beach (no shops or facilities near by)Written 17 August 2022
- Meeting the wonderful family who devote a huge part of their lives to this beautiful garden. Its also a place of great interest and indeed adventure for children. In addition, tha paintings exhibited are wonderful. This is a MUST visit and an education for children .Written 17 July 2022
- It’s a fantastic beach with fine sand, dunes and rock pools. There is a short walk from a car park to the beach. If you go at night then any light will attract loads of sand hoppers.Written 2 August 2022
- On knocking at the front door, we were met by Mrs MacAllister, who conducted around the house personally, She gave a good description of all we could see, and a brief history of the clan, which, is not connected to the Campbells, who seem to own much in this area. This visit takes about an hour, but regretably, there is no tea room. Well worth a £5 tour fee.Written 17 September 2017
- A 2 mile walk through the woods to get to the shore from Tarbert but really worth the effort,lovely secluded spot watching the world go byWritten 3 July 2019
- Super tour of a lovely distillery.
In production during my visit. They are in production at Glengyle (Kilkerran whisky) from September to December with the staff moving over from the Springbank distillery - which is on the same site.
Very interesting to hear about the rebirth of the Distillery and the challenges which were overcome. A great tour guide.
A dram, a glass and a miniature was included in the tour. The tour ended in the new Washback Bar which is lovely. At the Bar you can purchase a dram of all the other Kilkerran whiskies in the core range plus some other limited edition expressions. Well worth staying a while, taking your time,having a chat with the friendly staff and then visiting the distillery shop.Written 17 October 2021
