The sound of Argyll for over 20 years

Listen now on 106.5, 107.1 & 107.7 FM

Argyll FM’s journey began in the year 2000, as Kintyre Community Radio.

Over the years, we’ve kept that community spirit alive while we extended coverage across Argyll. We now reach audiences in the tens of thousands from Campbeltown across the Kintyre peninsula, as far north as Inveraray, and many of the region’s islands including Mull, Iona, Islay, Jura, Arran and Gigha.
Thanks to the unique geographical position of our transmitters we are also able to broadcast all the way to Northern Ireland and Ayrshire.

Until Argyll FM was up and running there was no local radio coverage for most of this under-served part of Scotland. Today, many local performers, artists and charitable organisations count Argyll FM as an essential part of their success.

We value our close liaisons with Police Scotland and Argyll and Bute Council to provide local weather, road reports and many other urgent appeals for information relevant to our listeners, while our ties with smaller community groups allow us to promote local events far and wide.

Our Coverage Area

Our three transmitters are uniquely placed to reach across the mountainous region and as far as Inveraray to the north-east, Mull & Iona to the north-west, the Antrim Coast of Northern Ireland to the south-west, and Ayrshire to the east.

Argyll FM broadcasts 24 hours a day, every day of the year without any support from external media companies. Everything is put together by the team of volunteers based in our Campbeltown studio.

Since we need to broadcast so widely to reach our audiences, we don’t qualify as a community radio station for financial purposes and so can’t access a lot of the funding available to smaller operations. Consider a membership to help keep us on the air!
