A delightful conservation village (meaning an area of architectural or historical interest) at the head of Loch Indaal on Islay, Port Charlotte is home to the Museum of Islay Life, the charming Natural History Trust, and safe, sandy beaches. South of Port Charlotte, the A847 continues along the wild landscape of the Rhinns of Islay. The road ends at Portnahaven and its twin, Port Wemyss, where pretty white cottages built in a crescent around the headland belie the harsh lives of the fisher families who live and work here.
