No 64 Easdale Island: how to find us

From Oban, take the A816 south following signs for Campbeltown. After about 9 miles take a right turn on to the B844, which is sign posted for Easdale.

About 4 miles further on you will cross Clachan Bridge, the famous 'Bridge Over the Atlantic', bringing you onto Seil Island.

Continue along the road to the village of Balvicar. At Balvicar follow the road around to the right at the junction with the road to Cuan. Continue on the road over the hill to the conservation village of Ellenabeich.

At the end of the village you will find parking signposted. The passenger-only ferry to Easdale can be summoned during operating hours by pushing the klaxon or light buttons in the ferry waiting shed on the pier.

The ferry crossing to Easdale Island only takes about three minutes, and the ferry runs according to the timetables below.

The post code for the island is PA34 4TB, but do not believe your satnav, (or Google Maps), if it tells you that you can drive onto the island. Easdale Island really is an island.
