Port Charlotte

Towns & Villages

    The Queen of the Rhinns', Port Charlotte is a village on the island of Islay.

    Port Charlotte is one of the prettiest villages on Islay. Terraces of small, single-storey whitewashed cottages line the foreshore of a sandy cove looking out over Loch Indaal. Local people call it the Queen of the Rhinns, the Rhinns meaning promontory.

    The fascinating history of Islay is explained in Port Charlotte's Museum of Islay Life. The Wildlife Information Centre, housed in a former distillery warehouse, is a good place to take children on a rainy day.
