Living in Campbeltown

Campbeltown is the heart of Kintyre which is an inspiring place to live, but don’t just take our word for it, ask former resident Sir Paul McCartney.

It is almost compulsory to sing Mull of Kintyre at any party here.

Then there is The Long and Winding Road, which, depending on who is telling you is either the A83 from Glasgow to Campbeltown on the western side of the peninsula or the B842 between Claionaig and Campbeltown on the east. Both are long and both wind, you decide. McCartney famously bought a farm and stayed here after The Beatles split.

The town has a history of heavy industry and this legacy can be seen today in the wind turbine factory; it still retains its two other traditional industries, fishing and whisky.

Farming and its support industries are another big employer here, the town has its own cheese-producing creamery. Ferry services have been reintroduced to the Ayrshire coast making Glasgow nearer and a foot-passenger service to Northern Ireland, both seasonal.

Public sector jobs with Argyll and Bute Council and NHS Highland count amongst the largest employers but a community buy-out of the former airbase looks promising. The airbase is also home to a scheduled air service to Glasgow.

Campbeltown’s remote location makes for a self-reliant community that provides its own entertainment and always makes sure there is something for its kids. There is a flourishing music scene with a festival, brass and pipe bands with award-winning junior sections, a good local football league and the half-marathon through some stunning scenery attracts British and foreign competitors. The recently-built leisure centre and pool is full of clubs. It is also home to the oldest surviving cinema in the UK, due to re open soon after renovation.

The beaches on the west side are fantastic with huge Atlantic rollers. Are you going to be one of the surfers who goes out before or after work, or both?
