Beaches:

Our favourite beach(in Winter and Summer) is Kilfinan Bay, a short stroll down through the woods to a shingle estuary and beach. 6 miles away is the stunning Ostell Bay (think endless south facing sunny sandy beach) and Kintyre has some of the best beaches in Scotland – just a short ferry ride away.
