Carradale

Towns & Villages

    Tucked away in a quite part of Scotland in Kintyre, Carradale is a small working fishing village situated dozen or so miles north of Campbeltown.

    The most redeeming feature of this quaint village is its peace and tranquility. The very picturesque but small harbour with its small fishing fleet, stunning views across the Sound of Arran and the wonderful Carrandale Bay with wide stretch of sandy beach to the south is perfect for walks and swims in shallow waters and make up for the peace. On the east side of the beach is Carradale Point, where the Scottish Wildlife Trust has a nature reserve with feral goats, and a good example of a vitrified fort built more than 2000 years ago on a small tidal island off the headland.

    There are several pleasant walks with good views across to Arran laid out in the woods around Carradale, for which the best starting point is the car park at Port na Storm on the road into the village.

    The village also boasts a 9-hole golf course and salmon and trout can be fished on the Carradale River during the summer months.
