Welcome to the Campbeltown Community Council Website

Campbeltown Ceann Loch Chille Chiarain, known affectionately as ‘The Wee Toon’ has more than half of Kintyre’s inhabitants with a population of approximately 4600. The town was founded around 1609 by Archibald the 7th Duke of Argyll.

Campbeltown is one of five areas in Scotland categorised as a distinct malt whisky producing region, and is home to the Campbeltown single malts. At one point it had over 30 distilleries and proclaimed itself “the whisky capital of the world”. Today only three active distilleries remain in Campbeltown: Glen ScotiaGlengyle, and Springbank. At one time Campbeltown was one of the most prosperous towns in Scotland but today is struggling to maintain itself as a viable community.

Campbeltown Community Council serves an area stretching from Sound of Kintyre in the West to Auchinhoan in the East, Lussa Loch in the North to Killellan Park in the South
