Kintyre Peninsula (The Mailand Island)


Kintyre west coast of Scotland

The Kintyre peninsula is well worth a visit, the scenery is breathtaking, if you have the time you should stay on the B roads they are very narrow with passing places, but the views are well worth the effort

Tarbert town is a lively little place, there is always something on, this picture was taken during the Tarbert fair.

Tarbert also hosts a folk music festival, and a sea food festival,

The Tarbert hotel comes recommended as a family friendly place to stay.
