A UK survey of Royal Mail Postcodes has led to a pecking order of preferences as to where to live. One Scottish island code was selected and that centred on Port Askaig, Islay. The criteria given are explained in the link. However, the hub of the port gives regular access (by CalMac and Argyll Council ferry services) to Kennacraig on Kintyre; frequent sailings to Jura; and a weekly trip to and from Oban on a Wednesday, with a return possible on that day to Colonsay.
