Campbeltown

The gorgeous waterfront town of Campbeltown is located on the peninsular of Kintyre in the Argyll and Bute region and lies alongside Campbeltown Loch and the Mull of Kintyre in the south of the peninsular.

Retaining much of its charm as an old harbour town, Campbeltown offers a good selection of outdoor pursuits, historical attractions and activities for visitors of all ages.

Campbeltown is a breath of fresh air, and the Carradale harbour and waterfront are the perfect place to explore the waterside attractions of this quaint town. The deep bay of Campbeltown is sheltered by Davaar Island, found at the mouth of the Campbeltown Loch, and the unspoilt beauty of this town is evident in the pristine surrounding countryside.

The town is home to several historical landmarks, of which the Campbeltown Cross on Main Street is the most notable. The Museum, Heritage Centre and library are located in a 19th Century building and feature many prehistoric items from the surrounding Kintyre area, and the Wee Picture House is an Art Nouveau building that dates back to 1913 and is believed to be Scotland’s oldest surviving cinema.

Art lovers will be particularly interested in visiting Danvaar Island, where a 19th Century painting of the crucifixion can be viewed at low tide in St Kieran’s cave. Campbeltown has a history steeped in whiskey and a visit to Springbank or the Glen Scotia Distillery will offer insight into the production process of this revered drink.

The town offers an wide range of outdoor activities and visitors can enjoy boat trips on the Loch, a round of golf at any of the seven courses in the area or walks in the surrounding countryside. Fresh water and sea fishing is also available in abundance and sailing tours are a great way to explore the coast of this beautiful holiday destination.

Campbeltown is one of a handful of areas in Scotland categorised as a whisky producing region and is home to the Campbeltown Single Malt - at one point having 34 distilleries and proclaiming itself the whisky capital of the world. The town boasts two distilleries as well as a museum, heritage centre and harbour, with an annual regatta and music festival. Other attractions in the burgh include The Wee Picture Cinema and a recreation centre (fitness centre, swimming-pool, café and library). The town is well served with supermarkets, independently-owned local shops and excellent hotels and restaurants offering the finest local produce. The surrounding area is well known for its fine beaches, unspoilt countryside and scenic walks, with the addition of the Kintyre Way making this an ideal location from which to explore the Kintyre Peninsula, including Skipness Castle, the village of Carradale, the Mull of Kintyre and Gigha.

Within a short distance there are many quiet and sandy beaches to explore and there is easy access to the Isles of Islay, Arran and Jura. Jura, one of the wildest and most mountainous of the Inner Hebrides, is an ideal place to go for peace and quiet. Islay is great for wildlife enthusiasts, as it boasts a large RSPB reserve, a wintering population of barnacle and white-fronted geese, and a Wildlife Information Centre.
