The Royal Burgh of Campbeltown is easily reached by air by sea or road. You can also take the stress out of driving and make the most of the views by using the five times daily Glasgow to Campbeltown bus service. The local harbour has pontoons for mooring and facilities nearby for yachtsmen.
The Kintyre peninsula is famous for its local golf courses, local whisky and, of course, its stunning beauty, inspiring Sir Paul McCartney’s ‘Mull of Kintyre’.
A drive down the coast quickly shows just what inspired him, with long sandy beaches, small intimate coves and the famous ‘mist rolling in from the sea’. These beautiful beaches make a stunning setting for outside ceremonies.
Campbeltown Marriage Rooms
Campbeltown’s registry office and ceremony rooms are located in the magnificent A-listed sandstone Burnet building, designed by Sir JJ Burnet. Situated in the town centre, the Burnet Building also houses a museum and has beautiful views over to the Isle of Arran.
There are two ceremony rooms available, both with many original features and displaying paintings by artists William McTaggart, Archibald MacKinnon and Gregory Robson.
The large ceremony suite accommodates up to 70 people and is beautifully decorated in rustic shades, with a grand fireplace and fabulous wooden beams, overlooking the Lady McCartney memorial garden.
The smaller ceremony room, in cream with dark wood panelling, enjoys views over the loch to Davaar Island and holds smaller, intimate parties of up to ten people.
Floral displays are provided in both rooms, with a music system in the larger suite to cater for personal choices of music.
There is ample parking close to the office but we would recommend guests use Hall Street, which is a short walk away. There is disabled access to the rear of the building and a portable loop system for those who are hard of hearing.
A 20-minute crossing from Tayinloan on the A83 brings you to the charming island of Gigha. Known as God's Island, Gigha has been owned by its islanders since 2001. The island has a number of suitable venues – ask your Registrar who will be able to help you.
The Isle of Gigha is community-owned and is the most southerly and one of the most beautiful of the Hebridean Islands. Seven miles long by a mile and a half wide, Gigha is situated three miles west of the Kintyre peninsular, less than three hours drive from the City of Glasgow. Gigha is breathtaking - sandy beaches, clear green seas, a host of wildlife. There are also Achamore Gardens to explore.
There are numerous areas on the island available for ceremonies including their stunning beaches.
