Book Ferries


Make no mistake: Kennacraig is a very small place - even the word "hamlet" might be overstating it. There are no cafés, pubs, bars or shops nearby, so if you are early for your ferry, you might be best advised to stop a little further down the A83 at Tarbert - roughly 5 miles away for a bite to eat or to stock up on supplies. What Kennacraig can offer is the chance to relax in a peaceful location while you wait for your ferry to Islay.
