Port Askaig

(Port Asgaig)
Argyll and Bute

A village and ferry port on the east coast of the island of Islay, Port Askaig lies at the narrowest point on the Sound of Islay which separates the island from Jura to the east. A steamer service from Glasgow first operated in 1821. Port Askaig featured as a location in the Ealing comedy The Maggie (1954), directed by Alexander Mackendrick (1912-93). Today there are ferry links with Feolin Ferry on Jura and Kennacraig on the west coast of the Kintyre peninsula, Scalasaig on the island of Colonsay and Oban.
