It is a great base for exploring scenic southern Kintyre and provides access to superb golf courses, beautiful scenery, many outdoor activities and for those travelling further afield, can be the start of your journey to discover the West Coast of Scotland.

 

Located on a deep bay sheltered by Davaar Island and the surrounding hills, Campbeltown itself is home to three active distilleries; Glen Scotia, Glengyle and Springbank with guided tours available at Springbank.

 

Kintyre offers a scenic trail of villages and towns and temperate climate fed by the warmth of the North Atlantic drift to visitors. Stunning scenery, world renowned seafood and local sourced and produced cheeses, beef and lamb make the area a must for food lovers.
