Paul McCartney's Mull of Kintyre up for sale

A country estate made famous by Sir Paul McCartney's song Mull of Kintyre is up for sale at almost £3m.

The 7,360-acre Carskiey Estate forms the Mull of Kintyre, which Kintyre resident McCartney sang about with his band of the time, Wings, in the 1977 hit song.

Now the estate, which includes the Edwardian Carskiey House and nine miles of coastline, has been put on the market by estate agents Strutt & Parker at offers over £2.95m.

McCartney once said of the lyrics: “I certainly loved Scotland enough, so I came up with a song about where we were living; an area called Mull of Kintyre. It was a love song really, about how I enjoyed being there and imagining I was travelling away and wanting to get back there.”
