Type de chemin
Consignes de sécuritéMost of the route is on pavements, tracks or minor roads so please beware of traffic and step aside to let vehicles pass. The final part of the route takes in an optional walk out to the lighthouse – tide permitting – if you decide to walk out to the lighthouse please take care as the walkway and bridge can be very slippery, especially in wet weather.

Points of Interest
Carraig Fhada Lighthouse
The lighthouse was commissioned in 1832 in honour of Lady Ellenor Campbell by Walter Frederick Campbell, and overlooks the Port Ellen's bay. On a clear day you'll get wonderful views back to the mainland. Keep an eye out for otters on the far side of the lighthouse - this is said to be a popular spot for them.
Food & Drink
There is nowhere to eat or drink once you leave Port Ellen, but in the village itself there are a few places to eat and drink e.g. the Islay Hotel, and the Sea Salt Bistro. You can also pick up provisions at the Co-Op and Spar supermarkets.
