Fes­tive fun at Christ­mas mar­ket

Campbeltown Courier - - LEISURE -

If ever there was a per­fect ad­ver­tise­ment for shop­ping lo­cally, it would be Ex­plore Camp­bel­town’s Christ­mas mar­ket. Spring­bank Dis­tillery’s malt barns were once again fit to burst with a won­der­fully vast and var­ied se­lec­tion of gifts, dec­o­ra­tions and prod­ucts, most of which were made in Kin­tyre. From small in­de­pen­dent crafters, to some of the area’s largest em­ploy­ers, 62 stalls filled the lower hall, beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated with twin­kling fairy lights. The smell of hot food and drink, cour­tesy of some of Kin­tyre’s best restau­rants, cafes and tea­rooms, lured those with tired feet to the hall up­stairs. As well as sus­te­nance, there were also face painters and chil­dren’s crafts, and Santa and a cou­ple of his elves even popped in to meet some of the chil­dren.
