Balinakill (pronounced Bal-na-keel) nestles on a hillside in seven acres of peaceful grounds on the west side of the Kintyre Peninsula in Argyll, easily accessible by air, boat or road.
This impressive victorian country house retains a wealth of period features and is set in mature gardens on the edge of the village of Clachan, one of the oldest settlements in Kintyre.
Balinakill has twelve en-suite bedrooms, an additional children’s play/bedroom, three large public rooms, a fully equipped country kitchen, a victorian dining room and a cosy gunroom bar with a wood burning stove. A separate catering kitchen is available should you wish to arrange full or partial catering during your stay and we can provide a list of recommended caterers and sample menus on request. On arrival you will find the house warm with the fires and the stoves set. The rental includes all fuel, bed linen, towels and kitchen accessories together with a small selection of toiletries and cleaning materials. Hairdryers, tea making facilities and hot water bottles are in all rooms. Full laundry and ironing facilities are available for guests’ use.
Your own private bar is left empty for you to stock and run yourselves. There are always at least a few guests who love the novelty of running their own bar! The bar is well equipped and you will find everything you need including ice buckets, cocktail shakers, a bar fridge and glass washer. There are pipes for kegs of real ale and draft beer so ale drinkers can pull their own pints and have their barrel of choice delivered prior to arrival. We are also fully licensed and provide a full bar service and wine list for larger functions where guest numbers exceed 30.
