Postcode Preferences

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.

I thnk the Colonsay and Oban option is available on summer Saturdays too from this year. A lovely sail both ways, good fish and chips on board - you just can't whack it!

This needs checking - for amendments to the Saturday service were posted at Port Askaig in late July. Whether this is just temporary or to be a permanent feature is not known by me.
