The in­flu­en­tial politi­cian was an elected mem­ber, trans­port spokesman and area chair­man for Oban, Lorn and the Isles. He rep­re­sented Ar­gyll and Bute on many is­sues across the UK.

Mr Mac­In­tyre was a de­vout Ro­man Catholic and com­mu­ni­cant in the Cathe­dral com­mu­nity. He was a mem­ber of many char­i­ties, clubs and groups, car­ing greatly about the peo­ple and town of Oban and wider Ar­gyll.

Mr Mac­In­tyre and his wife Rose­mary ran a bed and break­fast at their home on the banks of Loch Feochan.

It is un­der­stood he died sur­rounded by his wife and two chil­dren, as well as other fam­ily mem­bers.

Fu­neral ar­range­ments are yet to be an­nounced.
