Kintyre’s magical kingdom awaits

KINTYRE is the Riviera of Argyll and Bute with azure crystal seas lapping on sparkling sand.

Palm trees line Campbeltown’s Hall Street and yet this Gulf Streamwarmed oasis, once the whisky capital of Britain, is just 86 miles from Oban and a short ferry crossing from Arran.

The A83 from Lochgilphead is one of the best drives in Britain, with marvellous seascapes dominating the views to the west. If taking the ferry from Lochranza to Claonaig, there is a choice of route, firstly the delightfully winding B842 passes Carradale, Torrisdale, Saddell and Peninver, or a short six miles connects to the A83 at Kennacraig, just six miles from Tarbert the first village in Kintyre. There is more than enough for a lifetime in Kintyre as many lifelong residents will testify.
