The Kintyre peninsula is famous for golf, 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’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 and Archibald MacKinnon.

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.

‘‘We just wanted to thank you for being the most important part of our day –

the person who married us! You did the ceremony beautifully. We had no idea

what to expect, and whilst trying to hold it together your calm presence and

clear voice kept us focused on the most important moments in our lives.’’
