Whisky in Campbeltown
Gowanlea Heights Bed and Breakfast in Campbeltown
Gowanlea Heights is a Visit Scotland Four Star B&B in a marvellous Victorian Villa in Campbeltown; so you can be assured of quality and comfort.
With a rich whisky history and three distilleries, Campbeltown is an ideal launching point for your tour of Western Scotland distilleries. Think of us as the bridge between the start of the Highland region on Arran, which is a convenient day trip away, and our own historic, rich and distinctive award winning region of Campbeltown, leading on to the region of Islay and Jura.
Campbeltown is well-known for producing high-quality, rich, full-bodied whiskies with a maritime character. Recently, Glen Scotia was crowned ‘WORLD’S BEST SINGLE CASK SINGLE MALT’ AT WORLD WHISKIES AWARDS 2023, and previously the Glen Scotia 25-Year-Old won ‘Best in Show’ at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, not bad for the once Victorian whisky capital of the world!
We’re within walking distance of the three distilleries in Campbeltown. Mitchell’s Glengyle (for Kilkerran), Glen Scotia and last but not least, Springbank with its amazing end to end tour. Add the oldest independent bottlers in Scotland, Cadenhead, and your whisky visit to Campbeltown is both memorable and convenient!
For excellent dining, just along the road is Number Forty Two restaurant and the Harbourview Grill, and around the corner from us is The Ardshiel with its amazing whisky selection and evening meals.
Once you’ve spent a few days here, a short forty five minute drive gets you to the Islay ferry at Kennacraig to continue your whisky journey.
Book with us now to guarantee yourselves a stay in one of the best places in town with an included, delicious breakfast to set you up for the day.
