Welcome to East Kintyre!

Home to the beautiful villages of Carradale, Peninver, Saddell and Grogport, our location on the east coast of the Kintyre peninsula is famed for its natural beauty and warm hospitality.

With views out over the Kilbrannan Sound and the Isle of Arran, there’s a whole new world waiting to be discovered among the hills, woodlands and coastline.

We hope you also enjoy exploring our dedicated website and learning more about our fascinating history . . . and what’s going on right now in our vibrant community.  Community Council website logo

CCT Seek New Tenant for Network Cafe

As many of you may have already have heard, Lesley and Darren Freeman have sadly, after much soul searching, decided to “call it a day” in Dottie’s. This comes after being the most superb hosts and friends to many who visited the café – serving delicious bakes and meals to all visitors! - they will be sorely missed and we give them our thanks (and that of the community). We send our very best wishes for the future.  CCT are now looking for new tenants and for full details please  check out the Network Cafe page.
