Port Ellen Marina
Port Ellen Marina is operated on a ‘First come first served’ basis, run by a local charity – open from Easter until end of October. The well maintained pontoons offer a safe haven for visitors to the world famous distilleries, top class eateries, ancient historic sites, breathtaking scenery and abundant and sometimes rare wildlife. Bus, taxi and cycle hire are available locally, with scheduled air and ferry services to and from the mainland. Whether you walk the nearby ‘3 distilleries’ footpath, visit the 8th century Kildalton Cross, stroll to the ‘singing sands’ past the famous square lighthouse, hike to the towering American monument, golf at the Machrie or simply relax at beautiful Kilnaughton bay, there’s something of interest everywhere.
