The Central Scotland/Strathclyde region
Many have tried to keep Kintyre for themselves, but the beauty of Kintyre is a secret that just cannot be kept. A scenic trail indeed, easy to follow, yet with countless quiet corners to delight the eye, in which to re-charge your batteries for the hectic world outside.
On the dramatic Atlantic Seaboard of Scotland's Highlands and Islands, a temperate climate fed by the warmth of the North Atlantic drift makes Kintyre an all year round destination, with a quality of scenery matched by a choice of accommodation to suit all tastes.
The food is world renowned, especially the locally caught seafood, Campbeltown cheeses and the beef and lamb produced in the lush farmland coveted by so many invaders. Whisky Making in Kintyre
Todays local whisky follows tradition claimed by some to go back to Saint Columba himself, who, it is rumoured, first distilled “The water of life” - Uisge bheatha - here. From being the cradle of Whisky making, Kintyre became its capital too, with a distilling industry growing from a few illicit stills to 34 distilleries producing nearly 2 million gallons of whisky a year; the song “Campbeltown Loch, I wish you were whisky...” was never far from the truth!
Whether you arrive by Road, Ferry or Air, and follow it by Car, Cycle or on Foot, the Kintyre Trail will enchant you. When you are long back in the outside world, you will find yourself day-dreaming of the land of Saints and Kings, sunsets and seascapes...
The village of Southend lies at the end of the Kintyre Peninsula only 13 miles from Ireland. It has a unique and varied history spanning thousands of years, beautiful coastal scenery, birds and wildlife, a large seal colony viewed from Keil shore with neolithic caves, a magnificent 18 hole links golf course and is the start (or end) of the Kintyre Way
Southend is a pretty village with sandy beaches great for walks, the village has to offer a traditional pub called the Argyll Arms Hotel, and a small shop and tearoom called Muneroy Stores there is also a great play park to keep the children entertained when they're not building sand castles on the beach.
The peaceful little town of Campbeltown is situated just 12 miles away on the beautiful peninsula of Kintyre, and is one of the largest towns in Argyll.
Located on a deep bay sheltered by Davaar Island and the surrounding hills, it is an ideal base for exploring the many attractions of scenic southern Kintyre.
Once proclaimed 'the whisky capital of the world' with 34 distilleries, today only three active distilleries remain in the town: Glen Scotia, Glengyle and Springbank. Visitors can enjoy a guided tour of the last one and find out the secrets of whisky making in Kintyre. Springbank Distillery was founded in 1828 by the Mitchell family - and still in their hands today. It retains the old distilling methods to make Longrow whisky, and welcomes visitors by prior arrangement.
