A nice view of Port Ellen from the Ard, the pier with the (now former) Islay ferry MV Isle of Arran in the centre. On the right Port Ellen Marina. Behind the ferry you can just see the Port Ellen Maltings, the remaining warehouses from the long closed distillery are hidden behind the ferry.
A view to Port Ellen from Carraig Fhada lighthouse. The former Islay ferry (now a relief ferry since the MV Finlaggan entered service) MV Isle of Arran is waiting for the next crossing to Kennacraig at the ferry terminal. On the left the silo for the barley brought in for the maltings. Port Ellen Marina just visible behind the ferry pier.
