www.youtube.com Campbeltown Loch (Scottish Gaelic: Loch Chille Chiarain) is a small sea loch near the south of the Kintyre Peninsula facing eastwards towards the Firth of Clyde. The town of Campbeltown, from which it takes its name, is located at its head. The island of Davaar is located in the loch, and can be reach by foot along a natural shingle causeway at low tide. Oddly, while in English the Loch takes its name from Campbeltown, in Gaelic, Campbeltown takes its name from the loch – “Ceann Loch Chille Chiarain”. Oh! Campbeltown Loch, Ah wish ye were whisky! Campbeltown Loch, Och Aye! Campbeltown Loch, I wish ye were whisky! Ah wid drink ye dry. Now Campbeltown Loch is a beautiful place, But the price of the whisky is grim. How nice it would be if the whisky was free And the Loch was filled up to the brim. Oh! Campbeltown Loch, Ah wish ye were whisky! Campbeltown Loch, Och Aye! Campbeltown Loch, I wish ye were whisky! Ah wid drink ye dry. I’d buy a yacht with the money I’ve got And I’d anchor it out in the bay. If I wanted a nip I’d go in for a dip I’d be swimmin’ by night and by day. Oh! Campbeltown Loch, Ah wish ye were whisky! Campbeltown Loch, Och Aye! Campbeltown Loch, I wish ye were whisky! Ah wid drink ye dry. We’d have a gathering of the clans They’d come from near and far I can see them grin as they’re wading in And shouting “Slàinte mhòr!”. Oh! Campbeltown Loch, Ah wish ye were whisky! Campbeltown Loch, Och Aye! Campbeltown Loch, I wish ye were whisky! Ah
