Moving to Kirn

My husband and I moved to Kirn on a very wet and cold February day in 2017.

Although we had visited Scotland many times neither of us had ever been to this area before. After a week's holiday here, we both fell in love with the place and decided this is where our future would be. We went back and talked about it some more. With the final decision made, we sold our bungalow plus a business and within six months we were all here; lock, stock and barrel with our three dogs!

We moved from a large city in England, but we both felt that by relocating to Kirn, it would make such a massive improvement to our lives and wellbeing. Looking back now, it was a big step for us; leaving family and long-time friends behind, but a decision well worth taking with definitely no regrets despite the constant Argyll rain!

From day one, we can honestly say we felt truly at home here. We love the community feel we found ourselves in, and to us, Kirn has such a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Everyone has been so friendly to us outsiders and the reception we have received made us feel so very welcome and accepted within this lovely community. We have found the location of Kirn ideal for all the amenities but due to its smaller size it still retains a village feel, which to us makes it a very special place to call home.

We joined EnviroKirn almost immediately after setting foot in Kirn. This has significantly improved our social contacts and given us the opportunity to get involved with the many projects that are always on the go within the group. They do such a wonderful job around the village, constantly improving and enhancing the look of Kirn for us all to enjoy.

We both feel truly settled now and blessed with so many new Kirn friends.

Susan Bolland, Kirn.
