Yes, the mist really does roll in, as in the song, on to the Mull of Kintyre and the whole of the Kintyre peninsula, one of the greenest, most fertile parts of Argyll.
The lush pastures are home to dairy herds providing milk for Campbeltown Creamery, home of Mull of Kintyre Cheddar.
On the western side of the Kintyre Peninsula you’ll find not just seals bobbing in the waves but surfers who come to the beautiful Westport and Machrihanish beaches. Golfers are drawn to the first class links courses, with excellent accommodation close to hand.

At Southend you can look across to Northern Ireland and over on the east cost around Peninver and Carradale the views across to the Isle of Arran are stunning.

At the heart of Kintyre lies Campbeltown, the Wee Toon, with its busy port with big ships coming to take away Argyll timber and wind turbine parts, the fishing fleet landing its catches and Navy ships refuelling at the NATO depot. They’re all presided over by Davaar Island in the middle of Campbeltown Loch, which can be reached by a natural shingle cause way, the Dhorlin, at low tide.
