Port A’Bhorrain, Dalkeith Farm, Glenbarr, Kintyre

Campbeltown 10 miles, Tarbert 25 miles



Port A’Bhorrain occupies a stunning setting on the west coast of the Kintyre Peninsula and enjoys superb views across open water to the Mull of Kintyre, Islay, Jura and Gigha, with the Ulster coast and Rathlin Island visible on a clear day. The site includes approximately ½ mile of foreshore, with rocky outcrops and sandy beaches. Kintyre itself has some of the most outstanding and dramatic scenery to be found in Scotland, with a climate warmed by the Gulf Stream.

Port A’Bhorrain offers 5 exclusive plots, located on the coastal side of the A83, and with no through traffic. The site is within a stunning agricultural area, within which are lovely areas of beach, coastal rock, flora, fauna, and sea life including seals and dolphins. The western boundaries of the Plots 2, 3 and 5 lead directly to the shore.


5 superb plots on large detached sites are available, with detailed planning consent for 3 and 4 bedroomed houses. The plots are fully services and all plots have extensive ocean views. Each plot runs down to the shore (except Plot 4 which has views toward the south of Kintyre) and the new houses are sited within a stone’s throw of the coastline. The housing plots are all on levelled ground and have been sown down to grass. A coastal path has been installed for the benefit of residents which gives a walkway along the length of the beach.

The council has restricted the total number of dwelling at Port A’Bhorrain to 10 dwellings, including the existing Farmhouse. Please note that in order to provide larger footprints for the Farmhouse and Plot 5, the area shown as Plot 6 will now be omitted.

The Planning Consent can be view on the Argyll and Bute Council planning portal here. Ref 17/02778/PP.
