Mull of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre by Wings was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, December 3, 1977 spending 9 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Paul McCartney wrote this with Denny Laine, his bandmate in Wings. The song is a tribute to the Kintyre Peninsula in Scotland where Paul and his wife Linda had a farm. The Mull is the area at the tip of the peninsula, known for its beautiful scenery and tranquil atmosphere. After a difficult breakup with The Beatles, McCartney went there to avoid a nervous breakdown. In the UK, this is the biggest hit featuring bagpipes, which give the song a Scottish feel. They were played by the Campbeltown Pipe Band of Campbeltown, Scotland.
