Where are we?
Kintyre (Gaelic:Cinn Tìre) is a peninsula on the west coast of Scotland. Geographically, the peninsula is long and narrow, at no point more than 11 miles from west coast to east coast.
The principal town of the area is Campbeltown (Gaelic:Ceann Loch Chille Chiarain) ,which has been a royal burgh since the mid-18th century. It was renamed in the 17th century as Campbell’s Town after Archibald Campbell (Earl of Argyle) was granted the site in 1667. The area’s economy has long relied on fishing and farming, although Campbeltown has a reputation as a producer of some of the world’s finest single malt whisky.
What do we do?
SKDT has become a trusted community anchor organization for South Kintyre, delivering several substantial projects, both independently and in partnership. It has also supported other local community groups and charities with project development and funding. Read about our projects to find out more about what we do.
