From Port Ellen Ferry Port – approx. 3 miles, 10 minutes
From the ferry terminal take first left into Charlotte Street and heading out of Port Ellen. Take the next left immediately before the Diageo “Maltings”. After a small wood take the sharp bend to the left. Over a small bridge then left again by the cemetery. From here you will see the track to the lighthouse along the side of the bay. At the bottom of the hill continue on to the farm track, to us and the lighthouse. We are the second white house at the end of the track before the lighthouse.
