The cottages are set in the grounds of the Skipness Estate on the Skipness Penisular, all in stunning locations with amazing views, and affording a peaceful escape for holidays with family and groups of friends. All within a short distance of one another, this is the perfect choice for groups looking to enjoy quality time together and private time apart. Within the traditional exteriors are modern comfortable interiors with everything needed for a self catering break.

The licensed Skipness Seafood Cabin is also on the estate and offers a fantastic al fresco dining experience between the months of May and October. The Cabin has earned quite a reputation for the delicious selection of local fish and shellfish available, straight from the sea and served in a relaxed atmosphere. Take your time over a chilled glass of wine and incredible seafood whilst relishing the spectacular views, and watching Coco, the red deer who thinks she is a dog, cavort and play!

For history enthusiasts, there are endless opportunities for exploring, with the 13th century Skipness Castle and Kilbrannan Chapel on the estate. The castle grounds are open all year round, and the castle itself, free of charge, during summer months.

Skipness is a quiet haven, where the main activities are farming, forestry, fishing and conservation. During the summer months guests can try sea fishing - mackerel, cod and haddock can be caught not far from the shore - and river fishing is also available nearby. There are sandy bays for bathing and plenty of coves for rock-pooling. Waymarked walks are available both nearby and on the estate, for which leaflets are provided.

Ferries to the islands of Islay, Jura, Gigha, Arran and Cowal add to the area to be explored. The Gulf Stream washes past the west coast of Scotland and its gentle nurturing accounts for the soft mild climates and the luxuriant and exotic species of flora and fauna that are to be found in these parts.
