Self catering hostel on the Kintyre Peninsula


Campbeltown Backpackers, Kintyre Amenity Trust, Big Kiln, Campbeltown, Argyll, PA28 6JF

The Campbeltown Backpackers is housed in the Old Schoolhouse, a Grade B listed building. Offering easy access to the facilities of Campbeltown including swimming pool, gym, the Wee Toon cinema and Springbank, Kilkerran and Glen Scotia distillery tours, it is a good stop along the Kintyre Way which gives walkers spectacular views of the surrounding islands. The area also enjoys very good wind surfing, surfing, mountain bike routes and other major cycle trails.

Kintyre is full of cultural and historical interest being the place where St Columba came ashore from Northern Ireland bringing Christianity to Scotland. Robert the Bruce spent time in Kintyre on his way to Rathlin, whilst the beach at Saddell was the location for Paul McCartney and Wings’ video for the song Mull of Kintyre. For wildlife lovers the Kintyre Peninsula is a great place to see otters, seals and even golden eagles as well as red, roe and sika deer.

This accommodation is featured on our map of Mull, Arran and West Coast of Scotland and here is its own website.
