Campbeltown Cross is a medieval crossing marked by a 14th century carved monument that sits in a pretty park. The cross was erected at Kilkivan in a church before being moved to Campbeltown after the Reformation.
In the same area, guests will also find the Campbeltown Heritage Centre. It sits in the Lorne Street Church and offers an insight into the towns historical culture, society and economy. Learn about the agriculture, mining, distilling and military through exhibitions. Peruse the artifacts, models and uniforms that tell the tale so well.
Afterwards, head to a traditional pub for some locally sourced fare and whisky. Alternatively, visit one of the three nearby distilleries: Springbank, Glengyle and Glen Scotia. With a whisky history that goes back hundreds of years, it would be rude not to.
