Drumlemble


Argyll and Bute

A hamlet on the Kintyre Peninsula, Drumlemble lies 1½ miles (2.5 km) east southeast of Machrihanish and 4 miles (6.5 km) west of Campbeltown. To the north of the settlement there was once a halt on the Campbeltown & Machrihanish Light Railway, which closed in 1932. Coal was mined in the vicinity during the 18th and 19th centuries, with the pit at Trodigal, to the northwest, remaining in operation until the end of World War II.

The surrounding area is now predominantly agricultural, with large farms at West Drumlemble and East Drumlemble, although Campbeltown Airport / Machrihanish Air Station lies only 1¼ miles (2 km) to the north. Today, the settlement has few facilities, except Drumlemble Primary School which lies a quarter-mile (0.5 km) to the east.
