Mull of Kintyre

A beautiful spot on the most southerly point of the Kintyre Peninsula.

Many people will recognise ‘Kintyre’ after the well-known song “Mull of Kintyre” released by Paul McCartney. The Mull of Kintyre is the most south western tip of the Kintyre Peninsula. Located on it is a lighthouse which still operates despite being built in 1788. Another highlight of the Kintyre Way, a trip to the Mull of Kintyre is a lovely idea. Also, on a clear day you might be able to catch a glimpse of Antrim in Northern Ireland!
