Luxury holiday cottages, castle and pet friendly accommodation to let in Kintyre, Argyll, Scotland

Killean Estate welcomes you to Argyll on the glorious west coast of Scotland.

Our 5,000 acre working farm offers a wealth of peaceful, scenic landscapes with prolific wildlife amongst the forests, moorland and seashore. Ideally placed for walking, either on the hills or along leisurely coastal walks, you could literally spend an entire day out and not see a soul other than the native deer, rabbits, pheasants, otters, seals and seabirds.  However, the estate’s greatest feature of all is sure to be the stunning sea views over the Sound of Gigha to the mountainous islands beyond!

Things to do in Argyll

Alternatively, if perhaps the kids are in tow and you are desperate to entertain, there is plenty to please in the local area. Numerous activities are available including horse riding, water sports, whiskey-tasting and whale-watching. For those on a golf holiday, nearby Machrihanish Golf Course will impress, with its first hole voted as one of the best in the World, with another five local courses to play besides. Hunting and shooting enthusiasts are well catered for with game shooting, stalking and trout fishing all to be enjoyed on the estate itself. 

Self catering holiday cottages and castle to rent

There are 18 self catering holiday properties to let on the estate, which can sleep a staggering 99 people if combined together. There is a range of estate properties offering a tremendous mix of styles, including a Georgian Villa, pretty Arts & Craft cottages and a newly built courtyard of sea view holiday cottages.
