Port Charlotte

We seem to have enjoyed islands and have often taken opportunities to visit them – both the well known and those less often visited by tourists. Islay is perhaps a bit more visited than some. When we went – it was back in 2001 – we went for a day out from the mainland and booked a combined ferry/coach tour. There were many places to enjoy, but this was Port Charlotte.

Port Charlotte is on the east coast of the Rinns of Islay overlooking Loch Indaal.

It’s a pretty little place.

The coast is gentle and very pleasing as we look past the lighthouse and across the loch.

There is a wonderful museum with fantastic jigsaw puzzles or perhaps I should say, ‘dissected maps’.

The nerd in me loved the enamel signs on the Post Office.

But let’s allow the last photo to pay homage to those cottages.

The weather may have been less than perfect, but what a pleasant way to spend a 30th wedding anniversary.
