Immerse yourself into Campbeltown

Campbeltown is situated on the beautiful southern peninsula of Kintyre and is one of the largest towns in Argyll and is home to Campbeltown Marina, which welcomes all to Kintyre.

Once known as the whisky capital of the world hosting 34 distilleries, now to this day is home to three distilleries which include Glen Scotia, Glengyle and Springbank Distillery. Take some time out of your day to enjoy the guided tours these distilleries have to offer before heading to Campbeltown museum to learn about the history of the town.

A few miles North-West you will find Westport Beach, with stunning views across the water, which is a great space to try some watersports.

To the west of Campbeltown, you will find the Machrihanish Golf Course, where you will enjoy a round of golf surrounded by all sorts of wildlife.
