Bayview is a wonderful base from which to explore the unspoilt surroundings of Carradale, the Kintyre Peninsula and the nearby Islands of Arran, Gigha, Islay and Jura. The beautiful, rugged countryside and coastline can be explored using an abundance of varied walking and cycle paths. For sports enthusiasts, a challenging 9-hole golf course is just 150 yards from Bayview - or the world-renowned 18-hole Machrihanish Golf Course is just 30 minutes to the south. Horse riding and sea fishing are available locally. Sandy beaches are just a stone’s throw away at Port Righ, Torrisdale, Saddell Castle or at Carradale’s renowned mile of golden sand at the ‘big bay’. The nearby wildlife reserve is also worth a visit where birds, seals, otters and bottlenose dolphins can be spotted; Carradale Glen might provide a sighting of the pair of nesting golden eagles.
Carradale has a small but varied selection of fantastic eating places, all serving locally sourced produce. It also boasts two family-friendly pubs, a post office, petrol station and a general store/bakery. South is Campbeltown (16 miles) with its range of amenities including a museum, heritage centre, cinema and swimming pool/leisure centre. When the tide is low, venture on foot over to Davaar Island to view Archibald MacKinnon’s 1887 cave paintings or take a drive to the lighthouse and area Sir Paul McCartney remembers in his song titled ‘The Mull of Kintyre’.
Bayview and the village of Carradale will appeal to people looking for a well-appointed home away from home to relax and unwind in or use as a comfortable base to explore the beautiful and unspoilt surroundings of the Kintyre Peninsula. Pub/hotel 125 yards.
