John MacKinnon

When John and Laura MacKinnon were looking to buy a property as a holiday home their one criteria was that it had to be on the beach.

“Most houses along the coastline of Scotland have a road between them and the beach. We didn’t mind where it was as long as it was on the water.” Says John. After much searching, the MacKinnons finally found a little cottage for sale an hour away from Glasgow in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. It was an interesting site that had seen many changes throughout the years. In the 1800s it was the site of a large boat house with its own pier which serviced a big house at the top of the hill. Under the shale on the beach, the boat rails can still be seen. During World War II it was seconded by the military and became a coastal signalling post for passing submarines and ships. The 1970s saw it reconfigured as a private residence.
