Portnahaven & Port Wemyss

[Portnahaven]

Portnahaven and Port Wemyss are twin villages just a few hundred metres apart at the end of a long, single-track road from Port Charlotte. They're both tiny places with no specific tourist attractions: you come here for peace and quiet coupled with beautiful seascapes. Portnahaven probably edges it in terms of setting, strung around a horseshoe bay with bobbing seals watching life on land from a safe distance. For sustenance, An Tigh Seinnse in Portnahaven has an end-of-the-world feel but does surprisingly good food, justifying its excellent online reviews. Port Wemyss is even quieter, but has good views of uninhabited Orsay and its lighthouse, along with an attractive, windswept garden by the water's edge.
