Join us on the Kintyre Trail and find out what so captivated Sir Paul McCartney that he wrote one of the world’s best selling hit songs, ‘Mull of Kintyre’ about the area. Kintyre is on the extreme west coast of Scotland, joined to the mainland by a narrow isthmus at Tarbert and has all the characteristics of island living without the hassle and expense of ferry crossings (though you can come by ferry as well.) The peninsula is about forty miles long and contains within it everything which makes Scotland such an attractive holiday destination. Here you will find the hills, lochs, rivers, forests, seascapes, sandy beaches, history and archaeology and the sea food which have made Scotland so famous, but with the addition of those ‘little extras’ which make us almost unique; the palm trees showing the effect of the Gulf Stream, the low rainfall ( less than 40% of the rest of the west of Scotland), the most expensive eagles in the world, the absence of cars( our one traffic warden is the last example of an endangered species), a world class golf course on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean featuring the ‘best first hole in the world’, a land which is the very cradle of Celtic Scotland, and …………. But why not take a quick cyber – trek around the Kintyre Trail and find out for yourself?
