Port Charlotte is a pretty conservation village of whitewashed Victorian cottages originally built to provide accommodation for the local distillery workers. The village has a tranquil location on the shores of Loch Indaal with its white sandy beaches and sheltered waters.
It is perfectly located for the many attractions Islay has to offer including tours of the 8 local distilleries, bird and wild life watching, walking and cycling trails, pony trekking, island hopping to Jura or Colonsay, stunning deserted beaches stretching for miles, a world class links golf course and many ancient historical sites.
There are three excellent restaurants in the village: the award winning Port Charlotte Hotel with its fine dining restaurant and a cosy bar with over 200 Islay whiskies on offer; the Loch Indaal Hotel, with locally sourced seafood and reasonably priced pub menu; Yan’s Kitchen for seafood and dishes using locally sourced produce. Both hotels regularly have live traditional music playing.
Local amenities include a well-stocked village shop with post office and fuel pump, bicycle hire, the Museum of Islay Life and the Islay Wildlife Centre.
