Walter Campbell of Shawfield (1741 – 19 October 1816), the grandson of Daniel Campbell MP, was Rector of the University of Glasgow from 1789 to 1791.[1] He was also the Laird of Islay, Scotland.[1]

His daughter Katherine married Sir Charles Jenkinson, 10th Baronet, a cousin of Lord Liverpool, the Prime Minister in 1812-27.

His son John Campbell (1770–1809) was an army officer and a Member of Parliament. John's son Walter Frederick Campbell inherited Islay on his grandfather's death.[2]
