Campbeltown is one of the largest towns in Argyll, a busy fishing port set around an attractive harbour.
The town has some fine buildings, including the town hall with a striking white stone spire. Campbeltown Heritage Centre is the museum of local history.
Once home to over 30 distilleries, the number has declined in recent years, but there are a number of prestigious malt whiskies still produced in the town such as at Springbank distillery, which holds open days and tours by appointment.
Campbeltown is the ideal place from which to tour the beautiful Kintyre peninsula, with its stunning scenery and abundant wildlife. There are boat trips available to view sealife such as seals, dolphins and puffins, or watch from the shore at the nearby Machrihanish Seabird and Wildlife Observatory.
Take a boat trip to view the scenery and wildlife.
