Description

Looking for a council / HA house exchange.

I have a lovely 3 bed (2 double, 1 single) house on the west coast of Kintyre, Scotland in a small, quiet, rural village between the towns of Tarbert and Campbeltown with stunning views of the Atlantic ocean and the Islands of Gigha, Cara and Islay from the house.

Beaches and beautiful scenic walks all around.

It is a popular place with surfers and tourists. There is a village shop and a small cafe.

You can also get the ferry from the village to the lovely Island of Gigha and a ferry a few miles down the road which takes you to Islay where you can also travel onto the Island of Jura.

We love living here but we have to move to be closer to my husband’s elderly parents.

We are looking for a 3 bed house in the South of England, with easy access to London. Would love a pretty village but would also consider some areas of London. We would be looking to move around May/June 2018, maybe before for the right property.

An Interesting History & Updated Local Links

Pier Road

I have been researching local history and last week I came across this fantastic blog,
Gigha: My Spiritual Home 
If you love Tarbert and Gigha I think you should bookmark it, as well as covering a fascinating family history the writer has also collected a stunning collection of old historical photographs Of Tarbert.
And Gigha!
The writer also tells of her family history and documents her trips. It’s a brilliant blog and I shall try and read it all soon.
If you know of any similar sites please let me know so I can link to them, I’d also love to hear  of any old tales and folklore from around Tarbert, so please get in touch!
Also while browsing I found this video thanks to Tarbert Harbour Authority for sharing it on their Facebook Page.
