The Kintyre On Record Website Links and Overview

Though Kintyre is already well served by local websites, there are subjects and areas of
interest which these otherwise well-founded websites do not generally approach.

The Kintyre On Record website has been created to inform and educate "Kintyreans" old and
new about some of Kintyre's history and to put in place some present-day links which may
make it a little easier for people to access some of the services which control and contribute
to the general well-being of those who live on 'The West Road' and elsewhere.
