Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
Campbeltown was once the undisputed capital of Scotch whisky. The town is situated at the end of the Mull of Kintyre
peninsula, on the Western coast of Scotland, not far away from the Isle of Islay.
There is only one active distillery left (Springbank), another producing sporadically (Glen Scotia) and a new one (Glengyle) in an area where there were more than 30 of them in the early 1900's.
