    Things to Do

    How to get there
    To Balinakill by road;

    The majority of visitors to the peninsula travel by road from Glasgow driving along the west coast of Loch Lomond, over the mountainous route through the Rest and be Thankful and on into Argyll where the roads become quieter and the scenery more and more spectacular. The drive takes approximately 2.5 hours direct from Glasgow but there are many distractions along the way including the famous Loch Fyne Oyster Bar and the picturesque village of Inveraray and Inveraray Castle, home of the Duke of Argyll.


    There are two flights daily (Monday to Friday) to/from Campbeltown Airport - Glasgow ;

    Sea Plan Charters;

    Sea planes can be chartered from Glasgow, landing in Tarbert - www.lochlomondseaplanes.com

We stayed at Balinakill Country House in August for a musical work shop, everyone that attended the weekend thoroughly enjoyed their stay away, we all took advantage of all facilities and all admired what was on offer to us.

Before booking we viewed a number of different venues and Balinakill stood out from the rest then but after our week there I cant speak highly enough about the place. The house is tastefully decorated and in good condition,...
