Lephenstrath Bridge Holiday Cottages sit in farmland on the tip of Scotland’s glorious Kintyre Peninsula, half a mile from the beach and 400 yards from the Kintyre Way long distance footpath. The two cosy cottages, Dan’s Hoose and Nan’s Hoose, are next to woodland and within earshot of a gently trickling river, ideally suited for a peaceful retreat for up to four people each.

This scenic spot is only two minutes’ drive from the coastal village of Southend, where ancient footprints mark the spot where St Columba arrived in Scotland in 563 AD. Local attractions include sandy beaches, caves formerly used as dwellings, an award winning tea room, a rather fine golf course and a rich assortment of wildlife, including seals, otters, wild goats and eagles. 

Campbeltown, 13 miles away, is an historic town retaining three of its renowned 34 whisky distilleries. It offers amenities including a cinema complex, museums, sports facilities and an airport.

The cottages have been created from former farm workers’ homes and can be rented together for extended families of groups of friends. They are spacious, comfortably furnished and have log burners with wood supplied to keep any Scottish winds at bay while you enjoy some TV or the available DVDs.

Owner Paula McLean says: “This is wonderful walking and cycling country and it’s always very quiet.”
