Welcome to Kintyre, our beautiful mainland island

About us

Situated on one of the best beaches on the Kintyre Peninsular, this spacious caravan park boasts superb panoramic views over the sea and surrounding countryside that are sure to take your breath away.

Families have been camping at Carradale for their summer holidays for generations. Since the early days of the steamers coming down the Clyde from Glasgow and landing at Carradale Harbour, filling guest houses and bothies with summer visitors. We have come a long way from having the Boys Brigade camping on the Carradale Estate by the beach to what we offer now. With a beautifully sculptured family run small holiday park offering a mix of touring pitches for caravans, motorhomes and tents. We also offer self catering accommodation in our log cabins and static caravans.
