Walking in Kintyre
We are working up a guide to walks in the area based on local walks that we and the dogs know and love. There are not many written up yet, but we will endeavour to add to them if you think this is useful. Please let us know and we’ll make more of an effort to update it with more of our favourite walks.

Kintyre is spoilt for beaches. After all it is know as the Mainland Island meaning we are surrounded by some of the best beaches Scotland has to offer. Being a seaside hotel we have our own beach outside the hotel, Bellochantuy Bay, offering a good 2 mile walk to Killegruer. Then 5 miles south is the popular Westport Beach. a favourite with surfers.
Then there are the quieter more remote beaches at the Gauldrons near Machrihanish and several at Southend toward the Mull of Kintyre. On the west coast there is Saddle Bay with it Castle and ruins of a medieval abbey. The beaches here offer great view to Arran and at Carradale Bay there are cafes and hotels where you can stop for a drink or bite to eat. These are just a few of our our beaches. Ideal for walking your dog if you are taking advantage of hotel being dog friendly.
