Beautiful cottage in an excellent location yards from and overlooking the sea. Views to Davaar, Arran and the Ailsa Craig.
The cottage was well provided for, the highlight being the cosy living room with a stove.
The cottage is an excellent spot to study the bird and aquatic life. Great Northern Divers, Seals and otters were seen.
Another plus is the close proximity 3-4 miles to the town of Campbeltown which is of great historical interest. - The town at the beginning of the last century had the highest per capita income in Scotland from Distilleries, Fishing, Coal Mining etc. This has resulted in buildings of stature and fine architecture. Local golf courses are also a great attraction at Southend and Machrihanish..
The town is currently going through a resurgence with a large amount of finance being spent on the refurbishment of a large hotel with a parallel hotel at close by Machrihanish going through a similar rebuild.
There is also a fast passenger summer ferry to Ireland.
Taking everything in I wholeheartedly recommend the cottage and the area.
