Campbeltown is a small seaport on the Kintyre Peninsula to the southwest of Glasgow in Scotland. Originally known as Dalruadhain, it was the seat of the Dalriadan kings and in the 6th century St. Ciaran, one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland, landed here. However the present town dates from the 1600s when it was founded by Archibald Campbell, Earl of Argyll. Sights of interest include a granite Celtic cross (c. 1500) standing in the marketplace and the ruins of an old chapel.
From here you can explore the western shores of the Kintyre Peninsula. This gentle corner of the Highlands affords wonderful views over to the Atlantic Ocean and out to the Islands of Gigha, Islay and Jura. Visit the charming fishing village of Tarbert on the shores of Loch Fyne and go on around the peninsula returning down the eastern shores. The road is narrow and single lane but offers wonderful views over the Kilbrannan Sound to the Isle of Arran. Join the coast road at Claonaig, for views of Skipness Castle, stopping at Carradale, then Saddell Abbey before returning to Campbeltown.
