Kilchrist (pronounced Kilcreest) Castle Cottages are delightfully stituated among the rolling hills of Kintyre, with a remote feel yet under three miles from bustling Campbeltown. Currently 4 cottages are holiday lets and the other (small 2-bedroomed) is occupied by temporary caretakers, who do changeovers and small maintenance etc. Owners could live in a small cottage as they do or choose the largest and let the other 4. Turnover is increasing year on year (last year £27,000, current year est £30,000 plus). The business is well established over 12 years and there is scope for further expansion if owners wanted to offer part b+b, shorter stays etc.

An ongoing programme of updating has been taking place with many new windows, new kitchens etc to keep pace with increasingly high standards expected by visitors. 4 of the cottages are small - two with one bedroom and two with two, and an all-in-one living space. The fifth cottage is much larger and accommodates up to 5 in two bedrooms. All the cottages have lovely outlooks either towards the nearby castle and its grounds or looking to the hills. Buzzards, deer etc are regular visitors. This is a very manageable business for a couple or two friends.

The recent addition of a direct ferry direct to Campbeltown from Ardrossan has added to the attraction of the area. There is also a bid in for Kintyre to be the base for space tourism, which if successful would further put it on the map. The mild climate means that people holiday all year round, and we also host business people coming to work in the area for short stays.

For someone who wanted a bigger challenge, the castle is also currently for sale at a very reasonable price, (to allow for considerable repair work needed).

Alongside the cottages is a strip field currently available for guests to enjoy. The car park is at the top of the field, just above the cottages.

Reason for sale is that we are wanting to cut back on business commitments - not exactly retirement but cutting down.. We can arrange a visit for seriously interested people - subject to availability. For more details see (unfortunately the complex appears as an 8-bedroomed cottage, to fit in with their criteria!)
