The Royal Burgh of Campbeltown, the principle town of Kintyre, sits on a small sea loch and is the home of Springbank, Scotland’s oldest independent distillery. The town and surrounding area are picturesque featuring beautiful beaches, walks and old buildings reflecting a long trading history.
There is plenty to see and do locally and the town gives access to some of the nearby islands including Arran, which can be reached by a seasonal ferry crossing. Various daily excursions are available from the local Visit Scotland tourist office located on the pier and include popular whale watching and bird watching excursions.
The town attracts many golf tourists in the summer months, who visit to play the world famous Machrihanish Golf Course. The area also boasts secluded spots to include the famous Mull of Kintyre with its stunning viewpoint over the ocean. Campbeltown is a great place to relax and rejuvenate.
