Paul McCartney famed Mull of Kintyre estate put on sale

A country estate made famous by Sir Paul McCartney's song Mull of Kintyre has been put up for sale.

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

Now the estate, which includes the Edwardian Carskiey House and nine miles of coastline, has gone on the market. Estate agents Strutt & Parker are selling the property for 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."
