This substantial stone-built house is located on the coast overlooking the world famous Machrihanish Championship Golf Course and the Atlantic Ocean. One of a pair, the holiday property offers stunning views over Machrihanish beach and the Inner Hebridean islands of Islay, Jura and Gigha. Glasgow is only 20-30 minutes’ flying time from Machrihanish Airport, which in turn is 10 minutes’ driving time from the property. British Airways operate two flights daily, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. Campbeltown is one of a handful of areas in Scotland categorised as a whisky producing region and is home to the Campbeltown Single Malt - at one point having 34 distilleries and proclaiming itself the whisky capital of the world. The town boasts two distilleries as well as a museum, heritage centre and harbour, with an annual regatta and music festival. Other attractions in the burgh include The Wee Picture Cinema and a recreation centre (fitness centre, swimming-pool, café and library). The town is well served with supermarkets, independently-owned local shops and excellent hotels and restaurants offering the finest local produce. The surrounding area is well known for its fine beaches, unspoilt countryside and scenic walks, with the addition of the Kintyre Way making this an ideal location from which to explore the Kintyre Peninsula, including Skipness Castle, the village of Carradale, the Mull of Kintyre and Gigha. Lying just off the west coast of Kintyre, the Isle of Gigha offers a pleasant day trip. Within a short distance there are many quiet and sandy beaches to explore and there is easy access to the Isles of Islay, Arran and Jura. Jura, one of the wildest and most mountainous of the Inner Hebrides, is an ideal place to go for peace and quiet. Islay is great for wildlife enthusiasts, as it boasts a large RSPB reserve, a wintering population of barnacle and white-fronted geese, and a Wildlife Information Centre. For the outdoor enthusiast there is walking, cycling, loch and sea fishing and watersports in abundance. Shops 3 miles, pub 100 yards.

Customer Reviews of Rothmar West, Campbeltown - Sleeps 10
1st comment: If you are looking for a property which offers space, is perfect for a family, in a breathtaking location and clearly designed with families then this is it. Had we been any closer to the beach our feet would have been wet. The view was breathtaking, the house and gardens superb and the location perfect. There are two bathrooms, only one has a shower though but dont let that put you off. Nov 2011.
