Kintyre is a peninsula in the southwest of Argyll and Bute, Scotland. The narrow peninsula stretches about 48km (30 miles), from the Mull of Kintyre in the south to East Loch Tarbert in the north.
The main town of the peninsula is Campbeltown but the one thing you must do when visiting the peninsula is slow down and enjoy the scenery with great beaches and local food.
Why not check beaches nearby as we have 8 beaches around Kintyre, 15 beaches in Argyll and Bute, or have a look at our list of Argyll and Bute dog friendly beaches, or even our United Kingdom Blue Flag beach list.
