Kintyre is the cradle of the nation - the birthplace of Christianity in Scotland, and more recently Campbeltown was the self-declared whisky capital of the world. Local museums give a valuable insight into the natural and social history of this fascinating peninsula.

Campbeltown Heritage Centre and Museum

Situated on Big Kiln Street, Campbeltown Heritage Centre has a fantastic collection of objects spanning 300 years of social history. Once one of the richest towns per capita in all of Scotland - Campbeltown’s sheltered port played a key role in growing the whisky, fishing and tourism industries.
