About Kennacraig

Kennacraig is a small hamlet and is mainly used for access to the Isle of Islay, via the Port Ellen and Port Askaig. The nearest town is Tarbert Loch Fyne where you will find all amenities and fantastic restaurants.

About Port Ellen

Port Ellen, on the charming and historic island of Islay in Scotland, was founded in 1821 by Walter Frederick Campbell, and named after his wife Eleanor. Port Ellen is the second largest town on Islay and has magnificent views to the Oa Peninsula and Kilnaughton Bay. When the weather is rough Port Askaig is sometimes used as an alternative ferry port by ferries that would normally go to Port Ellen.

Around Port Ellen you can find an interesting range of archaeological sites covering the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age. There are standing stones at Kilbride, a fort at Borraichill Mor, several chambered cairns, and a chapel at Cill Tobar Lasrach. The island of Islay is the perfect place to escape from the stresses and strains of life on the mainland.

    Islay made memorable by the ferry journey
    • Surprised by the quality of the ferry - having done a few before. Especially the ferry from Kennacraig to Islay - which felt like a 5 star cruise ship on the way to a superlative holiday. Don't miss the Malt of the month! Its bound to warm you up for the trip ahead.
