It is 20 miles from Port Ellen, 14 miles from Port Askaig, 10 miles from Bowmore, 7 miles from Port Charlotte and 15 miles from Portnahaven.
BY CAR: From Glasgow, drive to Kennacraig - this journey should take approximately two and a half hours, or longer should you wish to take in the beautiful scenery.
