Things to see and do on a Campbeltown cottage break
Aside from its shops, restaurants and cafes, Campbeltown has plenty of other attractions to keep you occupied during your cottage break. The town is famous for its whisky production, and is one of only five areas in Scotland categorised as a malt whisky region. Campbeltown single malts have become synonymous with the town, with three distilleries producing whisky here: Glengyle, Glen Scotia and Springbank.
Other attractions to look out for during your cottage holiday in Campbeltown include the Campbeltown museum and heritage centre, which houses a collection of items including prehistoric items excavated from Kintyre. The Wee Picture House is also a must; this small, art-nouveau cinema was built in 1913 and is thought to be the only surviving, purpose-built cinema in Scotland. You'll find both of these attractions on the town's bustling waterfront.
Rich heritage and a mild climate make Campbeltown a desirable place to stay for those concerned about Scotland's variable weather conditions. To choose your favourite Campbeltown cottage, scroll down and browse our collection today.
