The area is steeped in history, at Southend St Columba first landed in Scotland (AD563) and the old Campbeltown Cross dates back to 1380. From the harbour, Davaar Island can be seen and you can walk out to it at low tide (if you’re brave enough!) along the mile long causeway. Campbeltown is more recently known for its wonderful golf courses, Springbank Malt Whisky, annual Music Festival (August) and award winning Pipe Band. You are only a few miles from Machrihanish, the 18-hole golf course here is one of the “Great Scottish Links Collection” and its first hole requires the opening shot to carry over the Atlantic! There is also a second Links course only recently completed and there are a number of smaller golf courses around the peninsula making this area a golfer’s paradise! For walking enthusiast the Kintyre Way provides a great long distance walk (87 miles) from Tarbert in the north to Danaverty Bay in the south. The close proximity to the sea gives lots of opportunities for coastal walks, boat trips, otter spotting, sea angling, surfing, ideal conditions for kite flying and very tastily locally caught seafood. The Mull of Kintyre peninsula itself is more like an island than mainland, as it is bound by the sea on 3 sides, its rugged coastline provides wonderful westerly views to the islands of Islay, Jura & Gigha. Or you can explore the east side of the peninsula passing through rural villages like Carradale & Saddell with views out to Arran. During the summer months it is easy to enjoy day trips, or even an overnight stay, to all of these islands as they have regular ferry sailings.
