Kintyre

Kintyre, long known as Cantyre until at least the 1930's, is the long droopy bit of Scotland that separates the Clyde from the west coast proper. In fact it is so droopy that legend has it that the Mull of Kintyre was once the bench mark for how erect a penis could be before being banned from being shown on BBC television (i.e. hardly at all). The west part, which is what we are concerned with here, is of course exposed to the south and west but there are some nice lochs to escape into, and the lovely island of Gigha. And Northern Ireland is only 11 nautical miles away, across the strong tides of the North Channel.
