Campbeltown was once known as the Whisky capital of the world until prohibition and the mid war recession caused the closure of all but a few of its working stills. There are now two Distilleries; Springbank and Glenscotia both fully operational producing award winning and world class whisky. Regular tours and tastings take place and all are welcome.
Machrihanish Golf Course
Machrihanish's 18 hole Championship Course is one of the originals and a must experience classic dunes course designed by Tom Morris in 1879. It is home to what is reputed to be the best first hole in golf with the tee shot taking the brave over the Atlantic and beach. The course is experienced against the back drop of the expanse of the Atlantic and the Inner Hebrides. Wheeling round the course and providing a chorus are the course mascot oyster catchers.
