There are some great restaurants in the area - Kilberry inn, The Victoria in Tarbert
One of our favourites is the Seafood Cabin at Skipness Castle where all seafood is prepared freshly every day during the summer months. There is also a smokehouse on site where you can stock up on smoked foods..
Clachan is conveniently located 10 minutes from Kennacraig for ferries to Islay and Jura; 10 minutes from Taylinloan for ferries to Gigha (15 minutes); 15 minutes from Cloanaig for ferries to Arran (20 minutes). Day trips - or even half day trips are very easy to all these islands with walking, golfing, beaches and distilleries on offer.
Kintyre Way (walking)
Clachan is situated at the end of the first leg of the Kintyre Way, a path that runs its way down from Tarbert to the Mull of Kintyre. Great for walkers of intermediate ability, each section is around 10-15 miles long. Our favourite is the section that takes you to Skipness and the Seafood Cabin (see above) for a late, well earned lunch.
