THINGS TO DO
The long slither of land that stretches down the west coast is the Kintyre Peninsula, one of Scotland's best kept secrets. A long stretch of deserted coastline, you might feel like you've reached the edge of the world.
- Make a day trip to the undiscovered Isle of Gigha, just a 20-minute ferry journey from Tayinloan on the Mainland. You might be lucky enough to be the only two people on the isle. Stop for lunch at the Boathouse Restaurant, Isle of Gigha, and try the seafood delights including the Gigha halibut bon bons.
- Raise a toast with a local gin from Beinn an Tuirc Distillery or a classic Campbeltown dram from Springbank, Glen Scotia or Glengyle.
- Check out the creative space, Crear, at the very north of the peninsula. A luxury wedding venue and art gallery, you can dream up a magical wedding for the future or purchase a piece of local art to commemorate your trip.
- Don't leave Kintyre without seeing the Mull of Kintyre from the lighthouse.
