Port Charlotte is a picturesque conservation village in the Rhinns of Islay, with a sandy beach and far-reaching sea views, and is the ideal base for a holiday exploring the island. Characterised by its charming white stone cottages, Port Charlotte offers a hotel, restaurant and café, village shop with post office, as well as a museum and wildlife visitor centre. There’s also a restaurant, bar and children’s playground at Port Mor, just outside the village.
A recent addition for walkers is The Loch Indaal Way, a new coastal walk connecting the two villages of Bruicladdich and Port Charlotte, ideal for any ability. Ardnave on the North of Islay is a wonderful walk on a clear day. The dazzling, clear turquoise water, the cows munching seaweed on the beach, the endless view to the distant islands beyond, the sound of choughs, the perfect picnic spot.
Port Charlotte is around 20 minutes’ drive from the two ferry ports of Port Ellen and Port Askaig and just 10 minutes from the main town of Bowmore which has a charming small village character, with plenty of amenities and a good variety of shops, hotels and restaurants, banks, post office, swimming pool and fitness centre. There are many small villages within a short driving distance, with Port Ellen being the principal fishing port and ferry terminal on the island with shopping facilities, hotels, restaurants, post office and pontoons available for yachts.
The world famous, challenging golf links at Machrie are about 15 miles away nestled alongside 7 miles of pristine beach. At the ferry port of Port Askaig, you can catch a ferry to the Isle of Jura which also has a world class reputation for whisky and beautiful scenery. Islay is known as ’The Queen of the Hebrides’, and can be easily accessed by ferry from Kennacraig in Kintyre or from Oban. The island is quite large and is a paradise for birdwatchers, ramblers, fishermen, golfers, artists, lovers of fine food and, of course, there are nine (and counting!) whisky distilleries to visit and savour. Ideal for an adventurous family, with sandy beaches to explore, fabulous walking and, being fairly flat, it is perfect for cycling.
