SUMMARY OF THE TRIP top

Kintyre is a place that time forgot. Well off the beaten track, and surrounded by beautiful coastline and stunning island views, this place is full of wildlife and steeped in Scottish history and folk lore.

This holiday will be tailor made to the specific interests and requirements of your family as well as the individual members. As a minimum it will include 3 nights plus 2 half days of activities for a family of 4. At the maximum it can include 4 nights and 3 full days of riding activities for a family of up to 8 people. What activities your group do is entirely up to each of you!

You’ll stay in the remote, 150-year-old Scottish farmhouse and feast on delicious home grown and local produce morning, noon, and night. With comfortable and characterful accommodation and beautifully eccentric hosts, the hospitality is as much of an adventure as the activities. The aim is for you to feel  completely at home here, but without having to do the chores! Just bring your appetite for adventure.
In terms of activities, we can offer any of the following:
• Horsemanship sessions (groundwork, learning to communicate with horses)
• Riding lessons in the arena (flat work and/or jumping)
• Trail riding (adventures into the wilds)
• Archery (ground archery and/or horseback archery)
• Guided walking farm tours to meet and care for the animals and/or forage for edible plants.
• Playing with our sheep’s wool (spinning or felting)

All activities can be run as either a half day or a full day.

It is also possible for us to help you arrange other activities for your family off the farm. For example, kayaking trips, boat rides, distillery tours. These are run by third party suppliers and would be charged to you in addition, directly by the supplier.

During any down time, there are a wide selection of family games and books available, or just enjoy wildlife watching and horse TV from the comfort of the Glass room.
