More About Port Ellen

Port Ellen is the second largest town on Islay after Bowmore and is situated in a sheltered part of the island, offering views to the Oa Peninsula and to Kilnaughton Bay, which is named after the chapel ruins and burial ground at the end of the bay beside the road to the Oa peninsula.

This lovely town built around Leodamas Bay was founded in 1821 by Walter Frederick Campbell, and named after his wife Ellinor or Eleanor, later shortened to Port Ellen. Just outside Port Ellen on Charlotte Street, you can find Ramsay Hall, built by and named after the family who, in the 19th century, owned the estates in the southern part of Islay.

The area around Port Ellen holds a very varied and interesting range of Archaeological sites covering the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Age periods as well as more recent examples of human settlement. For example, there are standing stones at Kilbride, a fort at Borraichill Mor, several chambered cairns, and a chapel at Cill Tobar Lasrach.

Port Ellen Ferry Terminal

Port Ellen has several shops, a butcher, hotels, restaurants and pubs, accommodation, a garage, post office and information office. Every thursday in the summer season from 4th May to 5th October, a handcraft market is held in Columba Hall in Frederick Crescent, next to the Co-op supermarket. From time to time the travelling cinema, Screen Machine, visits the island and parks for showings opposite Ramsay Hall, which is located next to the Port Ellen Playing Fields.

Another prominent feature of Port Ellen is the old hotel on the corner of Charlotte Street and Frederick Crescent. This hotel is currently undergoing complete renovation and restoration to it's former glory, planning to re-open in 2009. The Port Ellen Marina provides a safe comfortable haven for yachtsmen passing through the Sound of Jura.

A prominent building of Port Ellen is the former whisky distillery, now Port Ellen Maltings. Here most of the malts are produced for the majority of the distilleries on the island. The maltings are performed according to the specs from the distilleries. The warehouses from the former Port Ellen Distillery are located near Port Ellen Maltings. On the Islay's Lost Distilleries page you can find more information about the Port Ellen Distillery.

On the road heading east from Port Ellen, a narrow lane on the left leads to Kilbride farm. In the field, a few hundred metres from the main road is a prominent standing stone of almost 4.5m high with Cnoc Mor in the background. This area was a sacred place in much earlier days. Following the main road east you reach the three southern distilleries of Ardbeg, Laphroaig and Lagavulin. The Lagavulin Distillery is located in a secluded bay overlooking the former stronghold of the Lords of the Isles being Dunyvaig Castle. Further east is Kildalton Church and High Cross, Claggain Bay and Ardtalla, where the road ends.
